Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Is Urgent Care in New York?

The cost of urgent care in New York varies depending on whether you have health insurance. Urgent care costs will also depend on what coverage is provided by your insurance plan. The average cost of an urgent care visit tends to be about $100 to $150. The cost of an in-person visit can often be more costly than an online visit with one of our doctors. Our patients with in-network insurance typically pay $30, similar to their typical in-office copay or co-insurance. The cost of a self-pay appointment is $129.

Can Anyone Go to Urgent Care in New York?

Yes, typically anyone can go to urgent care, regardless of whether they have health insurance coverage. You cannot be refused care. However, an urgent care visit is not free. Many urgent care centers will have a fee sheet or fee schedule that provides some cost information upfront for common treatments. Note that urgent care does not treat emergency conditions. Serious, life-threatening injuries and illnesses, such as chest pain, a broken limb, or serious burn, are better left for the emergency room. Examples of conditions that urgent care can treat include colds, minor cuts and injuries, and urinary tract infections.

What to Do If You Need to Go to Urgent Care

If you need to go to urgent care, be sure to bring personal health information (such as what medications you are currently taking), personal identification, insurance information (if applicable), and payment. Note that life-threatening injuries and illnesses require going to the emergency room, rather than urgent care.

How Does Virtual Urgent Care Work in New York?

With PlushCare, you can talk to a board-certified doctor about your urgent care needs via video or phone call on our mobile app or the computer.

    DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!

    Wow. Wow. Wow. This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor. He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins. Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day. I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.

    I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
