What is my co-pay for a visit at Health Express Urgent Care?
Co-pays vary between insurance plans and individual benefits. The majority of patients co-pay’s range is between $20 to $50 but we have seen some plans with a $5 co-pay and others with a $150 co-pay. If you want to know your co-pay before your visit, please call your insurance company with your insurance details and they will be able to provide you with your benefit information specific to your plan. The member service phone number is displayed on the back of your insurance card. If you have deductible, you will want to discuss this with your insurance company, as and we will bill you for the balance based on what you insurance plan tells us.
How much will a typical visit at Health Express Urgent Care cost me?
It varies between insurance plans, individual benefits, and what tests you’re getting at the time of your visit. At the time of service, we collect the co-pay (if you have one), then we bill your insurance company for the services that we have provided. For in-network services, if you have already met your deductible or don’t have a deductible/co-insurance then insurance company will pay based on their contracted rate.
If we are out of network with your insurance or you have a deductible that has not yet been met or you have a co-insurance, then we will bill you for the balance based on the insurance companies contracted rate. If you’d like detailed for self-pay cost for specific testing, please call our front desk.
How much will the visit cost if I have no insurance?
Our initial visit cost with the physician for evaluation is $105. X-Rays, procedures, lab services, etc. are additional.
How much will my COVID visit and covid test cost me?
Depending on which covid test you’re looking for, insurance may cover part of your visit. We accept most insurance but you’ll need to contact your insurance company to discuss what’s covered for your exact plan at urgent care centers and for covid testing as well as what your co-pay will be for your initial visit. If you have self-pay questions regarding COVID tests, you’ll need to call and speak with our front desk and call your insurance company PRIOR to your visit!

When should I not visit an Urgent Care practice?
If you are experiencing life threatening conditions such as significant chest pain, shortness of breath, rectal bleeding, or passing out (syncope), extremely high fevers in the young or the elderly, these types of issues are best treated in an Emergency Room at your local hospital.
