    Insurance

    Like most physician practices, Methodist Urgent Care requires payment at the time of service. Fees vary depending on the level of service provided. We accept most major insurance plans. Click here for a complete list of plans.

    At the time of service, patients are required to pay the urgent care co-pay as determined by their insurance carrier (usually $25 - $75). This co-pay is typically substantially less than that charged by hospital emergency rooms and free-standing EDs.

    A pre-payment deposit of $150 is required prior to service for patients who maintain membership in High Deductible Plans. If deductible requirements have been satisfied, with verification from the insurance company, only the co-pay (determined by your insurance carrier) is required.

    As a service to our senior population, we participate with Medicare Part B. We also participate with various Medicare Advantage Plans, sometimes called "Part C" or "MA Plans," that are offered by private companies. If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan or a secondary plan and your insurance card says “Medicare,” Federal law provides for you to be seen at any emergency room or qualified urgent care center.

    A pre-payment of $150 is required from every patient who maintains membership in a non-participating insurance plan. We will “courtesy bill” all plans, meaning we will submit the claim on the patient’s behalf, and the insurance company may reimburse the patient depending on his or her contracted plan.

    A pre-payment deposit of $150 is required from every patient who presents to Methodist Urgent Care without valid health insurance coverage, or is on Medicaid, or who is otherwise a non-insured private pay patient.

    • What is an urgent care center?

      An urgent care center is used for episodic care for patients with medical conditions that require treatment. When experiencing a non-life threatening situation (but could lead to potentially harmful outcome if not treated in a timely fashion), a patient can receive treatment at Methodist Urgent Care rather than seeking treatment at an emergency room. Patients should inform their Primary Care physician of such visit and consult him or her for follow up care. If the patient is in a life-threatening situation, please call 911 right away for care.

      Methodist Urgent Care is a full-service urgent care center, meaning that we have physicians, diagnostic tools and labs on-site so we can diagnose and treat most patients in one visit. This saves time and money for patients and their insurance companies.

    • Are all urgent care centers alike?

      No, not all urgent care centers are alike! The quality of providers and the level of services vary widely. To assure the highest quality care, look for a center that is affiliated with a reputable health system, employs board certified physicians and is committed to patient satisfaction.

    • Do you accept my insurance?

      Methodist Urgent Care accepts major insurance plans and is working to accept more plans in-network. Co-pays are determined by your insurance plan, but are usually much less than those for an emergency room visit.

    • Do I need to make an appointment to visit Methodist Urgent Care?

      No, you never need an appointment. However, you can schedule your arrival time through our InQuicker program.

    • How long will a visit to Methodist Urgent Care take?

      Most patients are treated and released in about an hour. However, visit times vary depending on the number of patients at the center and the severity of their injuries or illness. Patients who require tests, such as x-rays or labs, may require some additional time.

    • How much does an office visit cost?

      Our fees vary depending on the level of services provided. Generally our fees are approximately one-third of those charged by emergency departments for similar procedures. Patients are required to provide payment or proof of insurance prior to treatment.
