Every year in the US, millions of Americans spend their valuable time and money in the emergency room when they could be seen in urgent care instead*.
Whether you’re insured or paying out-of-pocket, it’s important to choose Primary Health Urgent Care instead of the emergency room for non-life-threatening conditions.
Urgent care is faster. Our average visit is 44 minutes from check-in to check-out, and you receive the same level of care as the emergency room for non-life-threatening conditions. By comparison, the average emergency room visit in Idaho takes nearly 2 ½ hours**.
Urgent care costs less. You’ll pay about 75% less*** in urgent care compared to the emergency room, and that could mean hundreds of dollars saved on your next sore throat or sprained ankle!
