Urgent Care Cost-effective immediate medical treatment

Emergency room (ER) visits are rarely planned or inexpensive. To save on healthcare costs, consider visiting an urgent care center for non-life threatening illnesses and injuries. Studies show that an ER can cost six times more* than urgent care for the same service.

Save With Urgent Care

To get the most from your Humana Medicare plan membership, remember these facts:

  • Humana members who visit an in-network urgent care for a minor illness or injury can gain special savings. Members pay lower copays for the same services at urgent care centers compared with an ER.
  • Humana members may also have lower copays at certain urgent care locations, such as Concentra urgent care centers. Please review your health benefits to confirm savings opportunities.

If you don’t have medical coverage, many urgent care locations offer discounts or savings on select services.
