Home > Lowering Your Health Care Costs
Getting great care at a lower price is possible. Just like when you shop for food or clothes, there are things you can do to lower your health care costs.
If you think you are having a medical emergency, go to the ER. If you're not sure, you can call your doctor's office first or go to a walk-in clinic.
Many health problems are not emergencies. Your visit will cost a lot more in time and money in the ER than it would at a doctor's office or walk-in clinic. A trip to the ER for an earache, for example, may cost 3 to 4 times as much as it would at your doctor's office. If it turns out you are having a true medical emergency, a walk-in clinic will send you to the ER.
