Nevada Urgent Care and Walk-in Clinics
Nevada is known as one of the healthier states in the country with residents active with outdoor activities like hiking and biking which keeps the state having one of the lowest obesity rates in the country. This helps deter many health-related problems that other states have trouble with. However, with the high violent crime rate and high number of uninsured people in Nevada (over 22 percent of the population) – not to mention the number of people that come to the state each year to party excessively – it is easy to see how hospital emergency rooms may have problems keeping up with the demand.
Urgent Care in Nevada
In a recent study, it was found that over 58 percent emergency room visits in the state could have gone to one of the many urgent care clinics in Nevada. In fact, between 50 and 60 percent of the diagnosis at emergency rooms are better suited for urgent care, particularly non-life-threatening conditions like broken bones, cold and flu symptoms, stomach cramps and many others.
Walk-in Clinics in Nevada
As with most walk-in clinics, urgent care centers require payment for services (or at least an insurance copay) at the time of the visit. With urgent care copays generally in the $35-75 range depending on your insurance and uninsured visits typically ranging from $125-250, patients may want to consider even lower cost options when available. Specifically, retail clinics offer many of the same services as urgent care centers, but being staffed by nurse practitioners or physician assistants, their costs are lower. They do not offer x-ray, lab or other diagnostic services, but can easily treat conditions ranging for stomach virus to minor strains and sprains, in addition to preventative care and immunizations.
Specific urgent care and walk-in clinic services available in Nevada may include STD testing flu shots, school physicals and many other valuable services
