It’s no surprise that visits to the emergency room are expensive and can end up breaking the bank. It’s even worse for the millions of Americans who don’t have health insurance. The sheer cost of a visit to the emergency room drives people to not go – even when they really need emergency medical care. The good news is that you can get most of the same services you’re seeking from an ER at Lincoln Urgent Care at a much more affordable rate with or without insurance. We also provide emergency medical care to patients on a cash pay basis. 

 

Cash Discounts for Those without Health Insurance

Although we are contracted with most major health insurance companies and are working to add more to our network every day, we realize there are also many people in our community who do not have health insurance. We are happy to report that not having health insurance is not an issue and we can still provide a cost-effective and time-saving alternative to the emergency room (we even offer a cash pay discount!)

We are serious about getting you the care you need. Our goal is to take care of all our patients in all different situations. 

 

Doing Business with a Family-Owned Urgent Care is Different

Lincoln Urgent Care is not a large corporation. We are a family-owned and operated small business. As members of the Lincoln, California community ourselves, we realize that not everyone has insurance or the funds to visit the ER in a health emergency. All of our patient cases without health insurance are reviewed individually and we are able to offer a cash discount to those who need it. Our goal is to ensure quality urgent care is accessible to all who are in need in the Lincoln, CA area. Not having health insurance shouldn’t be a reason you don’t get the care you need. 

Our lead physician, Dr. Eric Ellis, is a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician who completed his training in Emergency Medicine at the University of Connecticut. However, after just a few winters, Dr. Ellis realized there’s no place like home and for the past 15 years has practiced in the state of California.
