|VALENCIA, CALIF – In response to high healthcare costs and the growing number of Americans without healthcare coverage, U.S. HealthWorks Medical Group, a leading national medical provider, announced today that it has instituted an affordable self-pay option for uninsured patients.
“We want to provide an affordable option for healthcare services to those who have no medical insurance coverage or have plans with high deductibles,” said Joe Mallas, Executive Vice President of Operations. “We offer a broad scope of health services at our urgent care centers, which are staffed by qualified, licensed, medical professionals. By offering this affordable payment option, we can provide a convenient alternative for the residents of the communities we serve and help to alleviate the burden placed on some emergency rooms.”
Patients may find a center in their area through the U.S. HealthWorks website and call for rates. Additional charges will apply when other services, such as x-rays or lab work, are needed and when medications or supplies are dispensed. This out-of-pocket payment option is an affordable alternative for uninsured patients or those with high deductibles. For patients seeking medical care under group health coverage, U.S. HealthWorks also accepts most major insurance plans.
The Urgent Care services provided at U.S. HealthWorks include treatment for:
- Colds & Flu
- Mild Asthma
- Cuts & Wounds
- Minor Burns & Injuries
- Sprains & Strains
