Services received at this CHI Franciscan Health location will be billed as a primary care clinic visit, and not as an urgent care visit. Please check with your insurance provider to understand your co-payment or co-insurance responsibility for the care received as it could result in a higher out of pocket cost. The exact amount of any co-insurance or co-payment that will be required depends on the services provided during your visit and the coverage offered by your insurance.
