What Is Urgent Care?

 

  •  Urgent care is a form of medical treatment for illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening emergencies. In-person urgent care treatment allows patients to walk into a clinic or treatment center in order to receive same-day medical attention. Online urgent care connects a patient to a doctor through a virtual visit on a smartphone or computer.

Can I Get a Prescription Online?

  • Yes, you can get prescription medication online through a virtual urgent care visit. Our providers can write prescriptions for non-controlled substances. They can also prescribe antibiotics, antivirals, and other medications based on your urgent care diagnosis. Once your prescription is written, the online urgent care provider will send it to a local pharmacy of your choice for pickup. 

 

How Much Does Urgent Care Cost?

 

  • The cost of urgent care varies based on whether you have a health insurance plan and the coverage your plan provides. The average cost of an urgent care visit is $100 to $150. A virtual urgent care appointment costs an average of $25 for insured patients and $75 for patients without insurance, much less than you can expect to pay at in-person urgent care.

How Does Online Urgent Care Treatment Work?

  • Online urgent care appointments allow you to have a virtual medical visit for your health needs. This is how online urgent care treatment  works:

  1. First, you book an appointment with one of our licensed, board-certified providers. Most appointments are just 15 minutes.

  2. During your virtual visit, you will speak with your provider online through your smartphone or computer. The provider will listen to your questions and provide you with a diagnosis and care plan.

  3. The provider can also prescribe non-controlled medicine and substances if deemed necessary. Your prescription will be sent to your local pharmacy for same-day pickup.

 

Should I Go To Urgent Care Or The ER?

  • The emergency room (ER) is meant for serious, life-threatening illnesses and injuries, while urgent care treatment is for less severe, minor conditions. Examples of reasons to go to the ER include chest pains, stroke symptoms, major wounds, and severe burns. Urgent care (both in-person and virtual) can treat conditions such as the flu, common cold, ear infections, sinus infections, minor cuts, and urinary tract infections.

Can You Go To Urgent Care Without Insurance?

 

  • Yes, you can go to urgent care without insurance. You do not need a referral to go to urgent care. You will, however, need to pay for your urgent care treatment.

  • At Be Healthy & Well you can speak with a board-certified provider, even without insurance. Uninsured patients pay $75 for a doctor’s appointment. We make it convenient for you to access the urgent care you need online
