Latest Trend Among Urgent Care Facilities

Several people have reported lately visiting Urgent Care only to find that they were billed as if they had visited the Emergency Room at a hospital.  Many Urgent Care sites are pairing with medical facilities and acting as satellite sites for the Emergency Room.  This is not always readily apparent so it is important to ask.  Otherwise, the costs can be $600 or more.  In a time where healthcare costs seem to be floating, this is a trend that can really increase consumer’s out of pocket costs.
