What are the benefits of going to Urgent OrthoExperts vs an ER?
You will be seen by MOC providers who have specialized training in orthopaedics and a better understanding of orthopaedic injuries. If you are treated at an emergency room, they will typically have you follow up with an orthopaedic office visit anyway. You can save time and money by going directly to Urgent OrthoExperts and be confident that your injury is being treated by a specialist in the orthopaedic field. Additionally, wait times are typically much shorter than they would be at a traditional urgent care facility or emergency room.
How is Urgent OrthoExperts different from a traditional immediate care clinic or ER?
Urgent OrthoExperts is an extension of our regular orthopedic clinic. Most Immediate Care facilities and ER’s charge higher amounts and insurance companies will charge a larger copay for traditional urgent care and emergency room visits. Since Urgent OrthoExperts is an extension of our regular clinic, the charges are the same as a regular office visit in our clinic and patients pay their regular office visit copay.
Will my insurance company cover my visit at Urgent OrthoExperts?
We accept most major insurance plans, it is billed the same as a specialty office visit with Midwest Orthopaedic Consultants. As with any medical care, it is always recommended that you check with your insurance company to assure coverage. Remember to bring your insurance card! Current insurance card or pre-payment of services required for services.
