Why is FastMed a low-cost urgent care facility?
FastMed Urgent Care clinics are designed to provide immediate care for common illnesses and minor injuries. We keep our overhead costs down through the following methods:
- Using electronic health records. No paper bills or dozens of forms. All your information is electronically filed and can be easily transferred if you need a referral to a specialist.
- Having on-site labs. We do all of our testing on site, unlike a doctor’s office that needs to send samples to an outside lab. Not only do you get your test results more quickly, you save the cost of shipping and paying another vendor.
- Digital Imaging. Every FastMed Urgent Care clinic has it’s own digital x-ray equipment. If you need an x-ray, you get one right away. Since the images are digital, they are stored with your health records. No chasing around films taken by a different vendor.
- Online Bill Pay. The less paper we handle, the more money we can save our patients. You authorize a payment source online, including any dependent you for whom you plan to pay. So if your son is getting a sports physical, you don’t have to give him your card or take off work to pay for services.
Do low-cost urgent care clinics take insurance?
What if I don’t have insurance?
We understand that a lot of people have gone through changes that make it hard to financially prioritize healthcare. Our FastMed low-cost urgent care discount program helps people without health insurance manage their healthcare costs: Healthy Life, Happy Price .
Isn’t it just easier and cheaper to go the emergency room?
You should always go to the hospital for emergency care. Anytime you think your condition could be life-threatening, you should dial 9-1-1 and get to a hospital right away. We offer an interactive tool to distinguish between urgent care and emergency care, but remember that if you think you should go to the ER, you should go to the ER.
There is nothing easier or cheaper about going to the ER for an ear infection or a sprained ankle. The average wait time at FastMed low-cost urgent care clinics is one hour. The emergency room is four times greater than that. Plus, when you go to the ER for non life-threatening circumstances, you put unnecessary strain on a system designed to deal with serious, traumatic illness or injury.
