Montana Urgent Care and Walk-in Clinics
Even though Montana has a mostly rural population, there are 65 hospitals for residents to find care. Some of the best ones include Billings Clinic in Billings, Benefits Hospital in Great Falls, and St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula. Plus, Montana was the first state to open a free clinic for government employees. In addition to hospitals, most cities provide access to urgent care facilities.
Health Issues in Montana
The economy in Montana is based on agriculture, which means there are lots of injuries related to ranching and farming in the state. A lot of the time these injuries can be treated at urgent care facilities, especially when they involve minor bone fractures, small lacerations that need stitches, and respiratory illnesses caused by outdoor plants. Other than that, most residents are fairly healthy because they stay active through their manual labor jobs.
Healthcare in Montana
Over three-fourths of the population of Montana had health insurance before the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010. However, soon all residents will have access to affordable healthcare when the Act goes into full effect. Their options will include use of urgent care facilities. Residents are never turned away because they don't have insurance, but there will be more options for them soon.
