The ER Alternative
The ER Alternative was new to LaGrange so when I got sick I thought I would try it out. The office is decorated really cool and has a "country feel" to it. I have Tricare insurance and when I asked the front lady if they take Tricare insurance she said that they did. So i filled out my paper work and after about 20 mins was taken back to a room. When I got back to my room, I then began to hear a conversation betweeen the Dr. and another lady (who was clearly a friend and not a paitent). They talked about everything from guys, to getting botox treatments, and about eating lunch. This conversation went on for AT LEAST 30 mins. When it was FINALLYover, the Dr. came in with a SHORT dress and cowboy boots. Talk about professional, right? After getting a couple of tets (strep and flu), I was finally out the door 2 hours later. A while after my visit I get a call saying that I owe them over $100.00 because my insurance did not cover it because I needed a referal from my Dr. They did not tell me this when I asked if they took my insurance (see above). And, If I had a primary Dr. in town don't you think that I would have went to see him when I was sick instead of going to the "ER Alternative". So, I think that should have been somthing that was told to me before I was seen. Now I am stuck with a nice bill after a visit that lasted as long as if I would have went to the REAL ER. Not a fan!!

The ER Alternative
I believe my daughter received good care, but they were trying to close early to go to a staff members wedding. I felt I was rushed in and out- and I could feel they felt annoyed I walked in with a sick child as they were trying to close early. However, once they realized she was very sick and having difficulty breathing, there demeanor changed. Wasn't really overly or underly impressed.

Tips & Advices
Under most health insurance plans, urgent care visits will require a copay that is usually less expensive than emergency room visits, but more expensive than standard doctor visits - around $120 on average. Urgent care staff do not have much information regarding individual coverage, so be prepared and check with your insurance provider to understand costs.
It is common for urgent care physicians to recommend follow-up treatment after an initial visit. Most commonly, patients will be asked to return to the clinic or their primary care doctor if symptoms get worse or do not improve in a certain amount of time. Patients might be referred to a specialist for treatment of more complex conditions. Or patients may simply be given a few basic tips for recovering at home. In any case, patients should follow the doctor’s advice regarding next treatment steps.
If needed, urgent care doctors can prescribe medication to treat conditions. This may include antibiotics for an infection or pain medication for a broken bone. Be sure to follow the doctor’s instructions for taking these medicines.
Be sure to explain your symptoms to physicians in as much detail as possible. Note when or where the symptoms first appeared if possible. Inform urgent care staff of any medical conditions you may have, all allergies, and all medications you are currently taking. Also be sure to bring proper forms of identification, and any health insurance cards/information to help process your visit.
You should be able to find a 24-hour urgent care clinic by searching online resources such as yellowpages.com. Be sure the location is included in your health plan network before visiting.
