How much does it cost to go to a walk-in clinic?
The cost to receive treatment at our clinic depends if you need to be seen by a doctor or need one of our everyday services. The fee to see a doctor is determined by your insurance carrier. It is usually printed on your insurance card, along with the charge to be treated at a hospital’s emergency department. The urgent care fee is generally less than the emergency room fee. There could be additional costs to your visit if further diagnostic testing or images are needed to assist our doctor with their diagnosis of your ailment. In some cases, these will be covered by your health insurance and in other cases, not. You should check with your insurance carrier for your current benefits. We will attempt to submit all claims to your insurance company and can provide you with documentation if you need to make a claim yourself.
Note: If you come to our walk-in clinic for a non-urgent care service, like a physical, your fee will likely be less.
If I am uninsured, can I still receive treatment at your walk-in clinic?
If you are uninsured in South Philly, we can still treat you at our clinic and offer discounted self-pay rates for our services. Again, the final cost of your visit will be determined by the services you need and any testing that may be required for a diagnosis. The staff at our walk-in clinic will review with you the costs and fees before we begin treatment. Payment must be tendered in full before any services commence. Without insurance, the fee to see one of our doctors is $125.
