Urgent Care Services
Rocky Mountain Urgent Care clinics are open days, evenings and weekendsl No appointment is necessary. All patients are seen on a walk-in basis. Almost all insurance plans are accepted (including Medicare, Medicaid and TriCare). Our urgent care services include:
|Urgent Care or Emergency Room?||Urgent Care||E.R.|
|Avg. wait time||Less than 1 hour||4 hours|
|Avg. charge for minor illnesses (earache, flu, etc.)||Under $300||$800 - $1,500|
Make the right choice and choose Rocky Mountain Urgent Care for treatment of non-life threatening illnesses or injuries rather than the hospital Emergency Room (ER). As the chart shows, the savings in both time and money are significant.
Know the difference.
It's important to understand the differences between a hospital emergency room (ER) and an urgent care clinic. The ER exists for the treatment of life threatening medical conditions, such as chest pains, or for severe wounds or amputations. The ER is not based on a first come first serve basis. Patients with life-threatening conditions are seen first and those with minor illnesses or injuries often must wait hours to be seen.
The Right Care at the Right Time.
All of our 9 clinics in the Denver/Boulder area are designed to promptly treat minor medical conditions before they become life-threatening. Our board certified physicians and licensed medical staff are specialists in emergency care as well as family, pediatric and internal medicine.
