Urgent Care vs ER

According to the U.S. government division of health care statistics only 15% of the patients seen in the Emergency Room were true medical emergencies. That means that 85% of the patients did not have a true medical emergency and could have sought treatment elsewhere.

Effingham Express Care is where you should seek treatment when your illness or injury is not an emergency but needs urgent medical attention.

An Urgent Care Visit Costs Less Than An ER Visit:

An ER visit can cost you upwards of thousands of dollars with co-pays of $200 or more! A visit to Effingham Express Care is just like a visit to your doctors office with insurance co-pays of $20-$50 and total costs far less than the ER. See the Insurance page for the plans we accept and for those not using insurance we offer a 25% discount for payment at the time of service.

Saving You Time:

Overcrowded emergency departments can have you waiting hours for the treatment of the most minor conditions. At Effingham Express Care we value your time and one of our goals is to have you in and out in less than one hour.
