Did you know with many injuries or illnesses, you can visit an urgent care center instead of the Emergency Room? An urgent care center is more convenient, plus it saves you time and money.
Average time of an ER visit: 4.5 hours
Average cost of an ER visit: $1,757
Average cost of an urgent care center visit: $153
An urgent care center is a good option for any issues that can’t wait for an appointment with your regular physician, but are not so serious that they need to be at an ER. Urgent Care centers can be just as quick as ERs, and offer many of the same services, including X-Rays, tests, and writing prescriptions.
If you’re experiencing any of these issues, head to an Urgent Care center.
