What's the difference between an urgent care center and an ER or doctor's office?

While some doctors extend their hours on a limited basis in the evenings or on the weekends, not all would be considered "urgent care" by the Urgent Care Association of America - or most insurance companies, for that matter. Retail clinics located within supermarkets or similar retail facilities, pain management clinics, or chiropractic offices also do not qualify as urgent care due to their limited scope of services.

Nor do most insurance companies consider it urgent care when hospital emergency rooms hold themselves out to the public as urgent care or "fast track" units, then later bill patients based on the same exorbitant fee schedule used by the emergency department. A series of recent articles in the Chicago Tribune reveals this problem as a growing concern to consumers.
