Saving Money: Urgent Care vs. Emergency Room

With millions of Americans visiting the Emergency Room each year, the costs per visit can really add up. Visiting the Emergency room for conditions such as an ear ache or allergies can really tie up the staff, slowing down the process and causing long wait times. Furthermore, Emergency room treatment for non-life threatening conditions is one of the major reasons for the rising health care costs.

For a majority of illnesses and injuries, an urgent care facility is a great cost effective alternative to the Emergency Room. Generally a visit to AFC Urgent Care is five times less expensive than the Emergency room and the wait time is significantly reduced.
