7 Benefits of Urgent Care Services
Friday, January 5, 2018

Today, urgent care centers are a growing force in the healthcare industry of the United States. These centers are specifically designed for providing services to patients with medical conditions that are not life-threatening, but still require immediate attention.

Urgent care facilities have had a major impact on the healthcare industry because they provide several benefits to patients and prove to be a good alternative to emergency rooms. Some of the benefits of urgent care services are listed below.

1. Shorter Waits

Often times, emergency rooms come with long lines which means longer waiting time. On the other hand, in urgent care centers the wait time is much shorter. According to Urgent Care Association of America, in urgent care facilities more than 80% patients only have to wait for 15 minutes or less before they receive treatment.

In hospitals, patients may wait for hours before a doctor attends them. Urgent care facilities can provide emergency care to the patients without long delays.

2. Save Money

In comparison to emergency rooms and hospitals, urgent care centers are less expensive and the services are easily affordable. Urgent Care also provides one bill so there will be no additional billing from outside companies. If you don’t have insurance, you can end up losing big dollars on hospital fees or emergency care facilities; therefore, urgent care services are best for saving money.

3. No Appointments

Urgent care centers operate on a “walk-in” basis which means that you are not required to make an appointment with the doctor before you can receive care. You can just come in when an urgent care center is open and you’ll be attended by the doctor in a short time.

4. Convenience

Most urgent care centers are open seven days a week and 70% of these centers start providing services as early as 8 in the morning. Only 2% of urgent care centers have extended hours past 9:00 p.m. Urgent care centers are your one-stop-shop for multiple levels of care including rapid testing, Digital X-ray, ability to forward testing when needed, and medications dispensary.

5. Lower Cost

Most health insurance plans are accepted at both urgent care centers and emergency rooms. Patients should check to ensure they are being treated by an in network provider to help lower out of pocket fees. The out of pocket fees and copays are considerable lower at an urgent care than the hospital or emergency room. When subscribers keep their overall charges low they benefit with an insurance that will have lower fees and better premiums the following year.

6. Accessibility

According to an estimate, only 10% of all the urgent care facilities in the United States are established in rural regions. This means that most of them are located in downtown and suburban areas. With emergency rooms filled with people and long lines, receiving care quickly in an urgent care center will put you on the path to healing quicker.

7. High-Quality Care

An urgent care center provides high quality care to all the patients as 94% of centers have at least one full-time medical provider employed on duty. When you visit an urgent care center, you can be sure to receive high level of care and treatment found at primary care hospitals.

If you wish to receive immediate medical attention without long waits and save your money on expensive check-ups then visit Doctors' Urgent Care. We provide high quality urgent care services and have trained staff who can attend to all your medical needs.
