Urgent care centers, which are part of the walk-in clinic healthcare category, are convenient for minor illnesses, injuries prescription refills and more. You can use urgent care centers for school physicals, stomach pains, ear infections, throat infections, flu shots, immunizations, burns, scrapes, bites and almost anything else you can think of! Some even offer vision tests, EKG and more sophisticated treatments. Plus, if you need a doctor's note to excuse your absence, they can often do that too.
Urgent care is great because you often pay less (with or without insurance) and wait times can be as little as 15 minutes (up to several hours during the busiest time of year).
Typically, insurance covers urgent care visits. If you have a copay, you will typically pay $25 to $100 out of pocket. But it's important to ask the center if they are an in-network provider. Uninsured patients typically pay about $200 out of pocket.
