Cost savings through urgent care vs emergency department 2012

This statistic displays the cost of the emergency department and urgent care in the United States as of 2012. In this year, urgent care treatment cost 130 U.S. dollars vs. 650 U.S. dollars of an emergency department visit. It is estimated that by transitioning unnecessary ED visits to urgent care there could have been savings of around 18 billion U.S. dollars in 2012. The urgent care market is projected to grow as it is often a lower cost option, and provides high quality and cost-effective medical care. However, rising costs, aging population, increased population with insurance will all create challenges in this market.
