How much does it cost to go to a walk-in clinic?
The cost of visiting a walk-in clinic depends on the purpose of your visit and the services you receive. Each visit has a base cost, and each added service, such as an x-ray or lab work, adds cost on top of that base price.
At Medical Access Urgent Care, we accept most major health insurance plans, including Medicaid, Medicare, Medical Assistance, among others. We are also a participating provider in all Blue Cross/Blue Shield plans. However, each insurance plan is different, so it is important for you to know and understand what your insurance does or does not cover. Additionally, each plan usually includes a co-pay, co-insurance, or deductible, which are up to the patient to pay. If you have any questions about which insurance plans we accept at Medical Access Urgent Care, please call our office and talk to one of our experienced staff members.
What do walk-in clinics treat?

How much does it cost to go to a walk-in clinic without insurance?
The average price of a trip to a walk-in clinic is between $50-$200. The actual cost to you depends on the services you will end up needing. Convenience is never cheap, but a visit to urgent care is significantly less expensive than visiting a hospital emergency room, which can run from $150 to over $3,000. If you don’t have insurance, you would be better off visiting an urgent care center instead of an ER, unless, of course, you are experiencing a medical emergency. A medical emergency is any illness or injury that is life or limb-threatening. In these cases, call 911 immediately. Otherwise, you can visit us at Medical Access Urgent Care in Germantown, MD.
