Emergency Room or Urgent Care

Emergency Room or Urgent Care

If you’re faced with a sudden illness or injury, making an informed choice on where to seek medical care is crucial to your personal and finance well-being.  Making the wrong choice can result in delayed medical attention and may cost hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.

In fact, Harvard University reported that 62 percent of personal bankruptcy are caused by medical expenses, making medical debt the leading cause of bankruptcy in America.

If you suddenly fall ill or become injured, how can you determine which facility is most appropriate for your condition?

Choose the appropriate place of care will not only ensure prompt and adequate medical attention, but will also help reduce any unnecessary expenses. Although urgent care centers are usually more cost-effective, they are not a substitute for emergency care.
