IU Health Urgent Care is proud to offer convenient access to care to all of Indiana's veterans. As one of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' contracted network of community providers, five IU Health urgent care centers in central Indiana and one location in Bloomington now offer care to veterans without prior authorization.
The expanded coverage for veterans is allowed under the congressionally approved Mission Act, which allows eligible veterans to receive care from community providers outside of the VA and is aimed at making it easier for veterans who have experienced issues with scheduling appointments and receiving care in the past.
Need to Pay Your Bill?
When should I go to an Urgent Care?
Urgent Care is an excellent option if you are experiencing a medical condition that is not life-threatening. Examples that are not life-threatening include: Abdominal pain or stomachaches; allergic reactions; common cold; cuts, scrapes, or bites; earaches; headaches; fractures; sprains or strains; strep and sore throat; sexually transmitted disease testing; sports physicals; upper respiratory infections; and urinary tract infections.
What's the difference between Urgent Care and an Emergency Room?
Urgent Care facilities are designed to treat medical conditions that are not life-threatening. Emergency Rooms are designed to treat medical conditions that are life-threatening or could result in permanent disability.
Do you offer sports and camp physicals?
Our Urgent Care facilities do offer sports and camp physicals. If your school or camp requires a signature from an MD, please contact the Urgent Care to ensure an MD is available. (NOT required for IHSAA physical forms.)
Do I need to make an appointment?
In addition to simply walking in, we do offer a “Save a Spot” option that allows you to save your spot in line and decrease your wait time at the Urgent Care facility rather than making an appointment.
Is Urgent Care a substitute for Primary Care?
Urgent care is designed to supplement your primary care. Your Primary Care Physician plays a valuable role in managing your long-term health care, while Urgent Care is designed to take care of your immediate and urgent medical needs.
How much is a typical visit?
For insured patients, we collect your deductible and/or your co-pay at the time of service, and then bill your insurer for you. After your insurer sends an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) to us, IU Health Urgent Care will bill you for any balance still due. If you don’t have insurance coverage, our rates are very affordable for self-pay patients.
