Our Accepted Insurance Plans
At Five Star and WellNow Urgent Care, we want you to focus on getting back to life faster and strive to provide you with best clinical care, including coordinating with your insurance carrier for payments. All of our urgent care locations offer affordable rates to treat self-pay patients who are with or without insurance. While we accept most major insurance plans, please note that the patient or their guarantor is fiscally responsible for all bills.
We’ve provided a list of insurance carriers with whom we participate at all Five Star and WellNow Urgent Care locations
If you carrier is not listed, your claim may still be paid as an out-of-network service and may require additional patient financial responsibility associated with the visit. Please call your carrier’s member services (the phone number should be on the back of your insurance card) or refer to your policy benefit to determine your out-of-network treatment options and your financial responsibility.
