Q: Does Dedicated Orthopedic Center Urgent Care take insurance?

A: We are happy to bill almost all insurance!

Q: Why does a free-standing ER and a hospital ER visit for an orthopedic injury cost more than Dedicated Orthopedic Center Urgent Care?

A: Most emergency room prices are inflated based on the rates at which insurance companies will reimburse a hospital and free-standing ER on a patient’s behalf. (That’s why a single aspirin could cost as much as $30). In addition, hospitals and free-standing ERs are allowed by law to charge a ‘facility’ fee. This fee, which ranges from $150-$400 per visit, is added to already higher treatment fees. This causes ER visits to cost significantly more than out-patient orthopedic treatment like Dedicated Orthopedic Center Urgent Care provides. Plus you’ll actually be treated by an orthopedic specialist, the correct physician for your injury.
