Urgent Care vs. ER office?

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN URGENT CARE CENTER AND ER DOCTORS OFFICE?

Urgent Care Centers provides “After hours” primary care for you and your family Urgent and Convenient Care Center provides medical, diagnostic, and therapeutic treatment to patients presenting a wide range of illnesses and injury, and well-patient needs.


• Common Illnesses • Diagnostic Tests • Occupational Medicine
• Skin Conditions • Wellness and Examination Services • Pharmacy Services
• Vaccinations • Physical Therapy • Specialist Services
• Preventive Screenings • Travel Health • Fracture care

While some doctors extend their hours on a limited basis in the evenings or on the weekends, not all would be considered “Urgent Care” by the Urgent Care Association of America - or most insurance companies, for that matter. Retail clinics located within supermarkets or similar retail facilities, pain management clinics, or chiropractic offices also do not qualify as urgent care due to their limited scope of services.

Nor do most insurance companies consider it urgent care when hospital emergency rooms hold themselves out to the public as urgent care or “fast track” units, then later bill patients based on the same exorbanent fee schedule used by the emergency department. A series of recent articles in the Chicago Tribune reveals this problem as a growing concern to consumers
