Americans aged 50 and older are feeling the pressure of healthcare costs, with 4 in 10 concerned about their ability to pay for care and others forgoing treatment altogether, skipping prescriptions or cutting back on daily living expenses to afford healthcare. (Becker's)

Pediatric Urgent Care FAQs

  • How much does a pediatric urgent care visit cost in Washington?

    Urgent care can cost anything from $75 to $150, depending on the clinic's location. Of course, this only applies to cash-paying patients. The quality and standards of healthcare, on the other hand, are consistent across the board. Most institutions, on the other hand, would charge between $100 and $125 for non-covered services. Keep in mind, however, that this is just the beginning of the fundamental therapies offered by urgent care facilities. Medication and immunization shots, lab testing, and X-rays are not included in the package. Stitches, sprains, and broken bones will all increase the expense of emergency treatment. Even patients with insurance will be compelled to pay co-payments rather than having their insurance company cover the entire cost. Payments are made in

  • Is insurance accepted at urgent care centers in Washington?

    Insurance companies decide whether or not to pay for emergency medical care. It is possible that a patient's insurance will not cover the costs. The urgent care center will only accept cash in that case. In most cases, however, insurance companies would cover urgent care, allowing people to visit a medical facility without having to pay a large sum of money. An urgent care center may refuse to accept this type of care even if your insurance policy covers it, but this is exceedingly rare. As a result, calling ahead and double-checking before visiting a care facility is always a smart idea.

  • What are common services of a pediatric urgent care in Washington?

    You may be concerned that your child is sicker than normal, but this is not the case. The truth is that children will get sick, especially after they enter school and their immune systems are exposed to the health risks that come with crowded environments. Colds, flu, strep throat, ear and sinus infections, pink eye, and pneumonia are just a few of the illnesses that can be treated in a pediatric urgent care facility near you. Pediatric urgent care clinics can also treat stings and bug bites, allergic reactions, wounds and burns, swallowed items, sprains, and fractured bones in addition to traumas.

  • What Is the difference between an urgent care and the emergency room?

    The patient experience is the most significant contrast between a pediatric urgent care center and an emergency room. In an emergency room, the typical wait time is roughly two and a half hours. A pediatric urgent care center, on the other hand, can see the child in 15 to 45 minutes. Another important distinction is the expense of an urgent care facility versus an emergency department. The former is usually a fraction of the cost of the latter. If a patient has a significant health emergency, they should go to an emergency department rather than an urgent care center. Because urgent care centers are exclusively for non-emergent and minor diseases, as well as minor injuries, this is the case.

  • What is the difference between pediatric urgent care and regular urgent care?

    The patient experience is the key contrast between a pediatric urgent care facility and an emergency room. In an emergency room, the average wait time is about two hours and fifteen minutes. The patient, on the other hand, will be treated in a pediatric urgent care clinic in 15-45 minutes. Another important distinction is the expense of an urgent care center vs an emergency department. The former is frequently far less expensive than the latter. In the event of a serious health emergency, patients should go to an emergency department rather than an urgent care center. Because urgent care clinics are only for non-emergent and minor illnesses and injuries, this is the case.

  • What is pediatric urgent care?

    Typically, pediatric urgent care operators collaborate with traditional physicians, the majority of whom are available during regular office hours (e.g. from 9 am - 5 pm Monday to Friday). Late-night pediatric situations that might usually demand a trip to the emergency room are handled by these medical specialists. Pediatric urgent care centers treat both minor and significant ailments in children. They are frequently open till midnight and on weekends, even when conventional pedestrians are closed. These children's doctors, without a doubt, save parents from unnecessary and traumatic trips to the emergency room.

  • 10 Ways to Keep Your Kids Out of the Urgent Care

    There are a variety of ways to keep children healthy and avoid health problems and emergencies. Simple precautions such as hand washing, regular water, and adequate sleep can help protect children's health. Many diseases can be avoided in toddlers by eating a well-balanced diet, managing stress, getting the necessary vaccines, and avoiding smokers.

I just got violated by a woman on Aurora with a q tip. Like, Really far up my nose... Im now laying down in a safe place (fetal position in my back seat) trying to mentally recover. So my wife tricked me. She said honey "i need you to get the emissions checked on the car b4 we sell it". Its an old kia and i think, "hey wait, isnt the emissions thing not a deal anymore?" Who cares, she seems to know what shes doing. I take the address, which i thought was nice of her, knowing how much i hate google maps etc i think, "ahhh, shes so sweet" It was all going smoothly untill the cheerful women dressed like a regular in the radiation, contaminated east Europe nuclear disaster scene hands my a q tip as big as my kids arm. She blinks blankly, wondering "whats this weirdos issue" smiles again and says "shove that up your nose and 10 times go in a circle". "Ahhh no" i say "no i cant do that. You need to do that 4 me but wait what does this have to do with emissions" She laughs, which for some reason freaks me out even more, and says "ok no problem." Something about this happy go lucky demeanor and the run down emissions location just dont add up. A homeless man or a hooker. Im not sure which, goes stumbling through the line of cars as i, hand shaking, pass the q tip to my, eyes only smiling, fully suited up new friend. Long story short, i now have recovered enough to sit up and write this experience so others can be metally prepared to face what i thought was an emission car check. Ok... i think im good.

Chad (AKA “SnotLord509”) I took my entire family of 5 sick children ranging from 3-15 yrs old and myself to the Pasco Test sight. 5 sick children that didn’t want to be out of bed let alone drive a three hour round trip including the hour we spent in line. The line seemed to move quicker than expected and all of the staff was very polite. However, there was one person that stuck out as being very passionate about making a terrible experience, as enjoyable as it could be. By the time we got up to the actually testing tent, my children were all well over being in the car and my oldest daughter who was the sickest of the bunch had already threatened my life several times if I didn’t not get her home so she could go back to bed. We rolled our windows down and Chad proceeded to help administer our tests. One by one, he Gently but thoroughly got us all done. He had all of my kids, who had done nothing but complain and bicker up to this point, laughing with jokes of changing his gamer tag from “BoogerMaster” to “SnotLord509”. They talked and laughed about him all the way back to hermiston. Two of my children came up negative so I came this morning to retest, dragging them out of bed sick at 6am. Wouldn’t you know it, they talked about and requested SnotLord509 to do our tests again. When we got there, he didn’t disappoint. I wish everyone was as passionate about their job.

I was nervous about testing and thought that I should take it serious but staffs were open to welcome us. They were friendly and provided us clear instructions. My nervousness went away and their kindness and calmness made me feel better. It was very quick and smooth process, easy in and out. Staffs were so nice enough to give us my dog’s treat and sticker for my son. My son was not feeling well so he was fussy. The nurse was professional and provided a safe care by offering choices to not having his test done since he was refusing to get tested. I know children or toddlers have less COVID cases around but I wish there was a kid friendly test kit for children to get tested like a testing with lollipop style swab maybe. Thank you for all you do for our community. I felt so blessed and appreciated for frontline workers. I was glad that they are also not over-stressed from work. I felt that they are enjoying their job and willing to help and support.

I called and had someone help me schedule my appointments which was helpful. The wait was not bad at all and the line was long, but we got through it quickly, which was surprising but such a relief. The staff was very patient, they were kind to my children and me, they explained to my kids how they’d be doing the Covid test and explained that it won’t hurt and would just feel funny. My kids did great and got over being so incredibly nervous. Everyone who spoke to us were very kind and patient. This was a much better experience than so expected (We had never been tested before) and I was so nervous I would be yelled at or lectured for being 5 minutes late but they did not mention it which helped my anxiety pass. I do not suggest being late of course, I am just thankful that I wasn’t treated poorly for it. Thank you!

Dr.Lemmon is fantastic!! After going earlier in the day to a different pediatrician in the area (SFM), I was so happy to have a much better experience at Woodcreek urgent care! SFM refused to tell me any results from my daughters blood test simply because she said “we can’t sit around looking at labs all day.” So I came to Woodcreek and was immediately met by nice ladies at the desk, incredibly helpful and sweet. The nurse was also sweet to me and my daughters and made us feel comfortable. But Dr. Lemmon was fantastic! He made us feel at ease with concerns but also understood them. He made my daughters laugh and feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. Thank you so much to Dr. Lemmon and all the staff at Sunrise Woodcreek urgent care! ❤️

I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have been connected with this as an option for my husband and I to receive our vaccines. He lost his job and then was diagnosed with end stage kidney failure last year, and I’m his caretaker. So the added stress of trying to find a safe and reliable place was weighing on us. Every single person we came in contact with at Fred Hutch was phenomenal, from start to finish. I’m trying to get my two teens their appointments here next, even though we live in West Seattle and have to deal with the bridge being down, the extra time is well worth it for the positive experience. THANK YOU all so much and stay safe!

I brought my 10 year old child for a covid test. She has sensory issues so I was very nervous. The staff member who did the test was very careful and kind. She told my child what she needed to do for the test before she did it, asked my child if she was ready, and was very careful when doing the test. Considering the staff member needed to swirl inside my child’s nose, I thought for sure this would be a difficult experience for my sensory kid, but the provider did a fantastic job putting my child at ease and my child told me “that wasn’t too bad… and that lady was nice.” Definitely recommend doing your test here if you can.

It's crazy to say going to get a covid test is a fun experience, but here I am saying it. The staff I have encountered at this location are ALWAYS in good spirits. Kind, funny and enjoyable. My two kids, who were NOT happy with me for taking them to get tested, even ended up leaving with smiles on their face...after the technician had them competing on how many boogers they could give him when he swabbed...competition is everything. :) I so appreciate everyone's sunny disposition (from check in to test) in the crazy time we are all going through. The process is efficient and tests usually come back w/in 24 hours (or less).

My appointment is at 5pm, usually when it’s this late, some people tend to be not nice anymore with dealing with others. This place is so friendly, the staffs are very nice to me. There is a car in front of me and I think the staff is swabbing a kids nose. We all know it’s hard to swab kods nose, they don’t like it. Anyways, it’s taking so long but then one staff came to me and did the swabbing. So by the time I’m done, he’s also done with the kid’s nose. So we left together, me at the back following. I very much recommend this place.

A little less than two weeks ago, I took my (then 8 y/o) daughter for a test and the guy was so rude- told my daughter she was a slow learner because she didn’t remember how to hold her head from her previous test. I never got a survey from that visit…anyway, the guy that did her test today was awesome!! He told her she was the best kid he saw all day and handed her a sticker badge. He made the process comfortable for her and it was much appreciated. I was hesitant to bring her back in case we got the same man as last time.

This was by far the best covid test site my kids & I have been to. Everyone was really friendly even the guys directing traffic had friendly smiles on their faces. When my son & I took the test they let us swab our own nostrils which made my 8 year old happy & excited to do it. I remember the last place we went to in Auburn was horrible when he gave my 18 month old the covid test so this place gets thumbs up from my kids & I. Thank you for making my son & I feel comfortable about getting the covid test done.

As a mom of young kids, I spend my fair share of time in clinics, all of which consistently meet my expectations. But our care at indigo on the evening of Dec. 8th was exceptional, truly exceeding all expectations for care and experience. Could I even say enjoyable!? The receptionist was friendly and prompt and our nurse was out of this world. She addressed my young son as her patient in a way that was understandable, appropriate, and comforting for him. The PA explained a clear and reasonable timeline for when to hear back from her and referred us to easily get our results online (so easy!).

Staff was very kind and patient. Process was super easy. Didn’t seem to matter that I had an appointment - not many people when I was there but could imagine folks getting frustrated if there was a big line and they thought they’d reserved a specific time. Maybe process changes if lines get longer such that those with appointments get faster access but if not it would be helpful to make that more clear when reserving a time so people know what to expect (especially if they have kids they need to keep calm while waiting). My personal experience was great and everything went very smoothly!

I have gone to indigo urgent cares for years now for myself and my kids. Tonight I had the best experience at the Argonne location. The staff was the most friendly and it made the visit so pleasant. Also a specific gal at the front named Kailee was incredible! They weren't doing any more rapid covid tests for the night and she went above and beyond to squeeze mine in and even was willing to stay a few mins late to process it. I couldn't have been more grateful for her. Her kindness was fantastic and ment so much with the crazy week I've had.

The tech platform for scheduling is missing an intuitive way to schedule multiple tests for my family. I have two small kids and didn't see anyway to do that clearly. I'm tech savvy and was working off my phone. I'd expect this a big barrier, especially for families that use their phone as their primary/only connection to the internet (think low income here). Registration is perhaps more important than onsite experience as if you can't register properly you don't even get onsite. The person checking us in was wonderful and helped fix the problem, which took about 10 additional minutes compared to others.

We were approached very quickly in our car when we pulled in. We were given paperwork to fill out in our car and a realistic wait time of 30 min. The nurse was very kind and came out to our car to give vaccinations to my older kids so I didn’t have to wake my baby that was sleeping in the car. It would have been nice to have some instructions on how to and when to get the second Covid shot. My questions prior to coming the day before were answered quickly on a facebook link. Thanks.

Seamless from ease of scheduling appointment to receiving both vaccinations... Drive through made it so accessible since I was dealing with a fractured ankle. The staff was friendly & efficient. It encouraged my driver, who wasn’t convinced about the vaccine, to schedule her appointment. We have been sharing our experience & encouraging others to get vaccinated. My 16 year old grandchild received the first dose. My 14 year old grandchild is waiting to receive the vaccine under the pediatrician’s guidance. We feel there is reliable scientific information being provided to support individual decisions regarding being vaccinated.

Ben was so courteous! Upon arriving he opened the door for me and my son. It really felt like the red carpet was rolled out right in front of us! Then Cindy called us back and did vitals. She is so kid friendly! Michelle noticed us from the nurse station and gave a friendly hello! Most of all I’d like to say thank you to Karla the ARNP, she is so compassionate and caring. She really took her time with my son/got on his level and listened to what he had to say! Thank you!

We arrived with my daughter right at the time of our appointment. There was no wait initially and all of us, one adult and 3 additional kids were able to sit in on the appointment. We saw the provider shortly and even though there were some technical issues I felt that our care was not impacted. Our only wait was for the results of the xray, which was a bit over 30 minutes but that is just an observation and not a complaint. We were happy just to be seen on such short notice

Washington Pediatric Urgent Care

Convenience is important these days, especially for parents with young children. In a world when 'next day delivery' is being beaten by'same day shipping,' who wants to wait several weeks to visit their pediatrician or primary care physician? There are several types of walk-in clinics, including urgent care, pediatric urgent care, retail clinics, and others. These handy locations offer same-day access to qualified pediatric providers who can diagnose and treat a variety of minor injuries and illnesses in children aged 6 to 18. If you've ever wondered, "Where can I find a walk-in clinic near me?" you've come to the right place.
The last thing you want to do when your children require immediate medical attention is travel to a nearby urgent care facility.

Urgent Care Guide for Kids

In a recent survey conducted with the Urgent Care Association, Solv observed that patients were waiting an average of 24 days for appointments with their primary care provider. In today's world of instant satisfaction, consumers expect more. They need it right now. If you want to see a movie right away, you can either download it or stream it. If you need groceries quickly, you can call and have them delivered within an hour. If you need to make a restaurant reservation, simply look for one that has openings, book online, then go in to seat down minutes later. There should be no exemption in the case of healthcare.

As a result, pediatric urgent care in the United States has increased at a faster rate than any other type of healthcare. It's also why healthcare customers search for "urgent care" more than 5 times more than "primary care" or "family doctor" combined. These customers are highly motivated, seeking for "urgent care near me" with zeal. People want same-day access to great healthcare providers whether they are sick or injured - after hours, on weekends, and on holidays - without the cost and inconvenience of visiting to the emergency room.

Non-emergent healthcare needs, such as the flu, sinus infections, and strep throat, as well as injuries, such as bone fractures and sprains, wounds, scratches, and burns, can be detected and treated at urgent care clinics. In addition, urgent care clinics are increasingly providing preventative care services such as annual physicals and well visits, flu shots, and other immunizations and vaccines, effectively filling the function of primary care physician for the tens of millions of individuals who lack one.

There are specific pediatric urgent care clinics for children aged one to eighteen years old, which are usually open after hours for patients aged one to eighteen years old.

Urgent Care Services & Pricing

Urgent care clinics, which are part of the walk-in clinic healthcare category, are a good option for consumers seeking treatment for minor illnesses and accidents. An urgent care clinic typically provides annual and school physicals, flu shots and immunizations, and treatment for ailments such as colds, flu stomach aches, sinus and ear infections, and more. You can also be treated for injuries such as burns, bites, sprains, and breaks, which you might believe should be taken to an emergency room rather than urgent care, but you'll wait less and pay less at urgent care. If you don't have insurance, your appointment should cost between $100 and 140 dollars, not counting transportation.

Insurance & Payments

Almost every urgent care facility accepts commercial insurance, and many (if not all) of them also accept Medicare. As a result, if you have insurance, the financial experience will be similar to seeing a specialist, where you will be charged a co-pay, which is typically $35-50, at the time of the visit. Any further lab work, x-rays, or other tests will be billed to your insurance first, with any remaining balance payable to you later. If you don't have health insurance, you'll have to pay a $100-140 visit fee at the time of your appointment. If you're considering a telehealth or video visit, expect to pay between 25 and 50 percent more than you would with your primary care provider, but the convenience is generally well worth the extra money.

Urgent Care Hours & Wait Times

Different urgent care locations, even within the same group or brand, may have different hours. While they're meant to be useful when your primary care physician isn't available, this is a highly subjective and variable assessment. An urgent care, on the other hand, is normally open 6 to 7 days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., according to a regular formula. Between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., this might be any 8-12 hour period. Some clinics are even open 24 hours a day, similar to emergency rooms. In terms of wait time, most patients say they have to wait between 15 and 45 minutes on average, though this varies. It's usually better to choose a nearby urgent care center.

Urgent Care Guide for Kids

In a recent survey conducted with the Urgent Care Association, Solv found that patients were waiting an average of 24 days for appointments with their primary care provider. In a world of instant gratification, consumers demand more. They demand now. If you want to watch a movie, you download it in minutes or stream it instantly. If you need groceries, you can pick up your phone and have them delivered to you within the hour. If you need restaurant reservations, you find one with availability, book online, walk in minutes later and sit right down. Healthcare shouldn’t be any different.

That’s why pediatric urgent care has been growing at a faster pace than any other healthcare service in the United States. And it is why healthcare consumers search for “urgent care” more than 5x more than “primary care” or “family doctor,” combined. These consumers are highly actionable, searching with high intent terms like “urgent care near me.” They want same day access to quality healthcare providers when they are sick or injured - after hours, one weekends and on holidays - without the cost and inconvenience of the emergency room.

Urgent care centers typically treat minor illnesses like the flu, sinus infections and strep throat, as well as injuries like bone fractures and sprains, cuts, scrapes and burns, making these clinics ideal for diagnosing and treating non-emergent healthcare needs. And at a growing rate urgent care clinics are offering preventative care services including annual physicals and well visits, flu shots and other immunizations and vaccines, taking on the role of primary care provider for the tens of millions of consumers that don’t have one.

For kids there are special pediatric urgent care centers, usually open after hours for patients between the ages of 1 and 18.

Urgent Care Services & Pricing

Urgent care centers, which are part of the walk-in clinic healthcare category, are a convenient resource for consumers needing treatment for minor illnesses and injuries. Services that you would normally receive at your primary care office are usually available at an urgent care including annual and school physicals, flu shots and immunizations, treatment for illnesses including colds, flu stomach pains, sinus and ear infections and more. You can also be seen for injuries such as burns, bites, sprains and breaks - things that you might first thing to go to the emergency room vs urgent care, but you’ll have a shorter wait and smaller bill at the urgent care. As for cost, without insurance, you should expect between $100-140 for your visit, plus the cost of any labs, tests or images. With insurance, urgent care will be similar to seeing a specialist with applicable co-pay.

Insurance & Payments

Nearly all urgent care centers take commercial insurance and many (if not most) will take medicare. As such if you have insurance coverage, you can expect the financial experience to be similar to visiting a specialist where you have a co-pay, usually $35-50, due at the time of the visit. Any additional lab work, x-rays or other tests performed will be billed against your insurance first and any supplemental balance due will be invoiced to you after the fact. Without insurance, you’ll pay a visit fee between $100-140 at the time of your visit. This is typically 25-50% more than your primary care provider, but usually the convenience is well worth the additional cost. If you are interested in a telehealth or video visit, your cost could be as much as 50% less than an urgent care, you could be diagnosed and prescribed medication and you’ll never have to leave your home.

    Urgent Care Hours & Wait Times

    Every urgent care center - even those part of the same group or brand - may have different hours. While they are meant to be conveniently accessible during times when your primary care provider is not, that’s subjective and highly variable. A traditional formula, however, is that an urgent care is open 6 to 7 days a week usually between the hours of 8 am to 8 pm. That could shift to nearly any 8-12 hour period between 7 am and 10 pm. You’ll even find some clinics open 24 hours a day, similar to an emergency room. As for wait time, most patients report waiting between 15-45 minutes on average, but that can certainly vary, as well. It’s usually best to find an urgent care near you to either confirm the hours online, or call the clinic directly to verify. Or, you can book a same day doctor appointment online with Solv.
