Emergency Care vs. Urgent Care
August 16, 2013 Melissa Bauman

Do you know the difference between Emergency Care vs. Urgent Care? It is important to recognize the benefits of each type of medical care when deciding where to go yourself or where to take your family.


Emergency Room: 

  • 24 hours a day
  • Potentially life-threatening injuries
  • ER co-pay, co-insurance, deductible or out of pocket

Urgent Care:

  • Extended hours
  • Non-major medical traumas
  • Lower co-pay
