7 Ways OSSM Urgent Care Can Save You Money

With the rising cost of healthcare, it’s more important than ever to find a provider who truly cares about you and wants to help save you money. At OSSM, we strive to provide our patients with the best quality care at affordable prices. We offer in-house care for your acute orthopedic or occupational injuries and concerns so you can skip the emergency room or other urgent care clinics. 

Our orthopedic doctors are trained and qualified to handle your needs and concerns. We understand the financial strain that medical costs can put on individuals and families, so here are a few ways we are committed to helping you save money while getting the best care available in Coeur d’Alene and its surrounding areas. 

1. Avoid ER Visits For Non-Emergency Orthopedic Care

ER visits can be incredibly expensive, but OSSM Urgent Care provides timely access to orthopedic care for non-emergency injuries. Our team of orthopedic specialists is trained in bone and joint injuries and can provide a proper diagnosis and treatment plan at the time of injury.

Additionally, we save you time – and time is money. You don’t have to spend hours in the emergency room waiting to be seen. If you come to OSSM, you’ll get the care and treatment plan you need in a very timely manner. 

2. Save on Costly Lab Tests. 

We offer comprehensive lab testing on-site, which can save you the time and cost of visiting a separate lab. When you come to our office, one of our trained nurses will perform the blood test for you so you don’t have to go somewhere else. Our team is dedicated to giving you the best care while saving you time and money in the long run. 

3. Reduced Waiting Times 

OSSM Urgent Care offers same-day treatment, so you don’t have to wait days or weeks to get the necessary care. If you have a minor orthopedic issue that needs treatment right away, you can skip the hospital and come straight to us. There’s no need to wait an extended period of time at the hospital when you can get the care you need right now! Additionally, you won’t have to pay outrageous hospital bills since you’ll receive care in our clinic instead. 

4. We Provide X-Rays On-Site

X-Rays are a huge part of orthopedic care, so we do our x-rays on-site. When you come in with an injury, we will assess the problem and give you an x-ray so we can get a better look. Once we see what’s going on, we’ll be able to give you a personalized treatment plan that will start immediately. 

5. We Accept All Major Insurance Plans 

We care about our patients and their financial well-being, which is why we accept all major insurance plans. Just give us a call today to see if your plan will work with us! On the other hand, if you don’t have insurance, we offer discounted rates for out-of-pocket care. Reach out to learn more and get the care you need and deserve. 

6. Skip the Hassle of Referrals and Authorizations

You don’t have to worry about getting referrals and authorizations from your primary care provider if you have insurance. We’ll handle all of that for you. If you know you have a minor orthopedic issue, you can skip going to your primary care provider and come straight to us – we’ll make sure you are taken care of from start to finish. 

7. We’re a Walk-In Clinic

Because we are technically an urgent care clinic, you can walk in and be treated at any time. Whether you sprained your ankle on a hike or your neck has been bothering you for a while, you can walk into our clinic, and we’ll take care of you. 

When you visit OSSM, our goal is to make sure you leave feeling like you have answers. We never want to send you out the door feeling like your pain isn’t going to go away, so we’ll do everything we can to get you a diagnosis and treatment. If it’s out of our scope, we will refer you to another trusted medical professional who specializes in your specific needs. 

When Should You Visit OSSM? 

Many situations would call for an emergency room visit. We don’t have everything the hospital has, so if there is a real emergency, you should definitely go to the hospital. However, OSSM can help you with a wide variety of non-emergency issues, saving you time and money. Here are a few examples of situations that would warrant a visit to OSSM Urgent Care: 

  • Sprains: If you have sprained your ankle, wrist, or any other joints, we can treat you at OSSM. 
  • Sports Injury: If you have a minor injury from playing sports, OSSM has the tools and equipment to treat you. Again, if you suspect a major injury, visit the emergency room instead. 
  • Minor Dislocation: We can diagnose and treat minor dislocations. From fingers to shoulders and knees, we can help get you back to feeling great. 
  • Fractures & Broken Bones: You don’t have to go to the emergency room for fractures and broken bones. We can treat you here! 
  • Ongoing Pain: If you have ongoing aches and pains in your muscles and joints, you don’t have to suffer alone – the specialists at OSSM are here to help. We can diagnose the issue and give you a comprehensive treatment plan all in the same day.  

At OSSM Urgent Care, we understand the financial strain that medical costs can put on individuals and families. That’s why we’re committed to providing quality care at a more affordable cost. We offer same-day treatment, comprehensive lab testing, onsite x-rays, telemedicine services, and more. We accept all major insurance plans, but you can also receive care without insurance.
