You never have to worry about the cost of care when being treated at Medco ER & Urgent Care. Our mission is to help all patients who come through the door to ensure they get the care they deserve at a fair price with no “surprise” or balance billing. We take great care to review each claim and ensure that your insurer processes the claim correctly
We Offer Full Transparency:
Upon presentation, each patient is seen within minutes by one of our board-certified physicians, who makes the determination if the patient requires emergency care or if urgent care services are more appropriate. The result of that determination is discussed with the patient before treatment is initiated. Our front office staff discusses all fees in advance and works aggressively with insurance carriers on behalf of our patients to ensure claims are filed correctly for their level of care. Medco’s staff goes the extra mile to work with each patient to mitigate the financial burden of medical care because we believe that nothing should ever discourage someone from seeking the medical help they need
