We accept all major insurances.
And we never charge a facility fee.
What is a Facility Fee?
When you are faced with the decision of visiting an urgent care clinic vs an emergency room, a number of factors may impact your decision. In addition to the cost for the services you receive, many emergency rooms and urgent care centers that are affiliated with hospitals charge patients an additional cost known as a facility fee. This fee can greatly increase the cost of your health care, as urgent care facility fees average at about $175.
While the fees aren’t mandatory, many hospital-owned urgent care centers chose to charge their patients with a facility fee despite never actually visiting a hospital. At Five Star Urgent Care, we will never charge you with a facility fee. That is one of the key differences between and our urgent care vs a hospital visit.
