Patient care has a new look and its called “walk-in”. Choice Medical Walk-in has been servicing the Anthem and Peoria area since October 2009. Exactly what is this new concept and how does it work? Most types of walk-in clinics provide basic medical services, such as routine vaccinations, evaluation of cold and flu symptoms, treatment for less severe physical injuries, care for well patients as well as a variety of physicals. It’s a combination of your traditional doctors practice with the convenience of walking in when needed. For those who are committed to a family doctor, the thought of using a walk-in clinic may be a foreign idea in the way of health care. However, this type of medical care facility may be one of the most cost-effective options available on short notice. It’s the best of both worlds. It provides the security of seeing your PCP, but on short notice. Your insurance copay is based a normal doctor visit and not an emergency visit or urgent care visit.
For those who wake up with an obvious cold, but your PCP can not fit you in, you are forced to seek out an urgent care office or an ER. The copays for these facilities are typically much more expensive than a walk-in practice. Choice Medical Walkin provides quality and convenience.
Charges may vary based on the level of care needed to properly diagnose and treat a patient. Most of the time, visits fall within the range provided, but in more complex cases additional testing or services may be needed to properly diagnose a patient. If any labs are performed and sent to a third-party laboratory the patient will be billed directly from the laboratory.
If Using Insurance
We recommend contacting your insurance company prior to your visit to verify coverage for the service you are seeking. This will also prepare you for any out-of-pocket costs you might be responsible for at time of service. Your payment responsibility may vary based on your insurance coverage.
