According to Physician One Urgent Care:
Research suggests approximately 60 percent of ER patients could be seen at urgent care centers. According to experts, that would result in an 80 percent reduction in insurer costs and a 58 percent reduction in consumer costs.
From a patient’s point of view, an unnecessary visit to the ER can be an expensive decision. The average ER visit can cost a patient at least $750, while the same exact treatment at an urgent care facility generally costs only $200. This price difference can make a substantial impact for families struggling to make ends meet, especially when they can get the same level of quality care at an urgent care facility.
