We accept most insurance plans including Medicare. Co-payments are required at the time of your visit. If you are a self paying patient, payment is expected in full at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, VISA, MasterCard and Discover.
For uninsured patients, there is a $25 charge due the day of service and the patient is required to call MedAssist at (606) 833-2104 to apply for Medicaid benefits before being seen at the office in the future. If the patient does not qualify for Medicaid, the patient will have the opportunity to discuss arrangements for payment or other financial assistance with the business office.
Patients are responsible for monitoring prescription refills. Please make the physician and nurse aware of the need for refills at the time of your visit. If you are not scheduled for an appointment but need a prescription refill, please call the office during business hours and leave a message for your nurse. We request 48 hours to process refill requests.
Please remember that in certain situations appropriate medical care requires the benefit of a patient examination before a prescription can be filled.
Diagnosing Urgent Care - Answers to Common Questions
What exactly is an urgent care center?
Urgent care centers provide treatment for the non-life threatening illnesses and injuries that occur on a day-to-day basis. The center’s staff is equipped to handle a variety of illnesses and injuries, from colds and flu to lacerations and fractures. Patients seeking medical attention or advice do not have to make appointments at the hospital’s Urgent Care Center.
Should I use the urgent care center instead of my family doctor?
We are a great option if you have an urgent medical condition that you feel needs immediate attention. If your family doctor is neither available, nor equipped to handle the situation, urgent care might be a suitable alternative. We work closely with each patient to ensure that all necessary records are transferred to the appropriate family physician.
How does urgent care differ from the hospital’s emergency room?
There are several main differences between urgent care and the emergency room. The hospital’s ER is staffed 24-hours a day and is designed to treat patients suffering from life threatening injuries or serious illnesses. In contrast, urgent care centers are designed to treat non-life threatening injuries (lacerations, mild fractures, etc.) and illnesses (colds, flu, migraines, etc.) in a patient friendly environment.
When should I utilize treatment at the Urgent Care Center?
Urgent care should be used for any medical illness or injury that you deem as urgent. It is best to receive direct attention rather than waiting hours, days, or weeks for an appointment. Since we maintain extended evening hours beyond those of family doctors, it is an excellent option for late day, evening, and weekend medical problems.
