Consult board-certified doctors face-to-face online for as little as $99 per year
While most urgent care clinics don’t accept appointments, some do. It doesn’t hurt to pop onto their website and check since wait times average 15-45 minutes. This is also a great chance to look and see if telemedicine would be a better option than an urgent care clinic.
If you can’t check in online or make an appointment, be mindful of the time you go. Urgent care clinics are often busier on weekends and evenings. If you can, try to go during the day on a weekday to get in and out quicker.
#4 – Who will I see?
Urgent care clinics may have doctors on staff, but you will often be attended to by a physician’s assistant or a nurse practitioner. While these people aren’t medical doctors, they do have graduate or doctorate level education to diagnose and treat your problems.
Urgent care clinics often have a copay that is higher than the copay for your primary care doctor. Copays for urgent care clinics average $35-$75. If you don’t have health insurance, costs for an urgent care clinic can run from $100 to more than $300.
Bonum Health offers competitive pricing for your telemedicine needs. For only $99 per year, with or without health insurance, you get unlimited phone or video appointments with a doctor any time of day or night for minor health issues such as cough, cold, flu, pink eye, vaginitis, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, bug bites, headache, ear problems, allergies, UTIs, and more.
If you’re considering urgent care, you should consider using Bonum health instead for a more convenient and cost-efficient way to get the care you need 24/7.
