Lansing Urgent Care FAQ
Q: What insurances do you accept? and do you see patients without insurance?
A: We accept most insurances including BCBs, PHP, McLaren, Cofinity, Medicare, AETNA, and many more at Lansing Urgent Care to accommodate a large majority of insured patients in the Greater Lansing area. We also see self-pay or uninsured patients as well.
Q: Why and when the urgent care vs. the ER?
A: The ER is often overburdened and very expensive for most of us to visit when we have a minor injury or illness. The ER sees patients based on their chief complaint and its relative severity level. Meaning, your sore throat will always take a back seat to the trauma patient that just came in the door, as it should be. In an urgent care setting, the first come first serve basis for minor injuries and illnesses gives you access to excellent care in a much more timely fashion. Also urgent care services are priced very similar to a primary care office, so the cost of a visit to the ER is often more than 700% higher than a visit to your local urgent care.
Q: What types of services do you offer?
A: From sports physicals to xrays, we offer most of the services someone would need for a common cold to a possible bone fracture or laceration. We also have on-site lab services, ekg's , splinting/casting, and digital X-Ray system.
Q: When are you open?
A: We are open seven days a week - Monday thru Saturday from 9a-9p and 9a-6p on Sundays at our clinics. We are also open most holidays to serve our patients as well.
Q: What is the difference between urgent care and my primary care physician?
A: We actually work very closely with the local primary care offices to help in overflow or after-hours care for their patients. Many patients use us when they are unable to get into their doctor's right away for an acute illness or injury
