Urgent care provides people with an easy, convenient, quick, and cost-effective option for medical attention, without a costly trip to the hospital emergency room. Patients can choose urgent care based on several factors, as urgent care operates on a walk-in basis, with patients being seen in the order in which they arrive. Factors that can affect the choosing of an urgent care include the hours of operation, its proximity to where you are when needing medical care, and the services it offers. Urgent care provides treatment to patients with medical conditions that require treatment within 24 hours, that are not considered to be life-threatening in nature. Life-threatening illnesses and injuries, as well as complex medical cases, need to be treated through an ER or by calling 911 for immediate medical attention. Urgent care can be used when your family doctor isn’t available or additional testing such as lab tests and x-rays are required for a diagnosis.
Urgent care provides a wide range of medical services and treatments for patients of all ages, from pediatric patients through to geriatric patients. At Boca Medical Care, our team can provide patients with diagnosis and treatment for medical issues such as sprains, strains, lacerations, physicals, coughs, cold and flu, ear infections, sore throat, minor fractures, and a wide range of additional conditions. To help with our diagnosis, we have an onsite laboratory to quickly process lab tests performed through the urgent care, as well as the ability to perform and assess x-rays. We are able to fulfill prescriptions onsite as well. Patients who come to Boca Medical Care can walk out of their visit with an accurate diagnosis and a complete treatment plan to get them back on their feet and on the road to recovery. So long as the medical issue isn’t life-threatening or complex that requires extensive testing or invasive treatment, it can be treated through an urgent care.
Urgent care visits are less costly than a trip to the hospital emergency room, however, there is still a cost associated with them. Most health insurance plans do cover urgent care visits; however, it is always best to check with your insurance provider to find out exactly what your coverage is. In some cases, the patient may need to pay a co-pay at the time of their appointment, which is a type of deductible for their insurance. The patient should also check with the urgent care to see what insurance plans they accept directly to avoid having to pay out of pocket for the appointment and then submit it back to their insurance for reimbursement. In some cases, insurance providers may also provide coverage only for specific doctors or urgent care centers that they have partnered with. When in doubt, always contact your insurance provider to know your coverage, and check the website or call the urgent care that you are planning to visit to find out their policy on insurance coverage.
Boca Medical Care is accepting new patients into our practice.
