Urgent Care Network of Omaha Clinics FAQs
Addition Not Replacement
Urgent Care Network of Omaha clinics should be used as an addition to, not replacement for, a primary care physician. Urgent care clinics can treat you right away when you get an unexpected illness or injury, but you also need a primary care doctor to address your long-term health. These primary concerns include things like:
- getting your immunizations and screenings
- monitoring chronic conditions like diabetes and blood pressure
- having a health history to determine appropriate approaches to future health concerns
Urgent Care Network of Omaha clinics normally operate on a first-come, first-served basis, seven days a week. We don’t know in advance when we will be busy or slow. Typically, our least-busy times are late morning through mid-afternoon. Some procedures (like stitches) take more time than others (like diagnosing the flu.) We do try to treat patients promptly, but thoroughly, so they can get on with their healing.
Urgent Care Network of Omaha clinics are NOT for severe, life-threatening cases. Please call 911 or go to a hospital emergency room for those. People who have conditions like these need to be treated at the ER:
- excessive bleeding
- head trauma
- unconscious or incapacitated
- may be poisoned
- suffering pains that may be a heart attack or stroke
Urgent Care Network of Omaha facilities can do sports and activities physicals for those participating in school and organization activities. We do not do school physicals that are required by the State of Nebraska for students entering first, seventh, and ninth grades. These school physicals ask for additional services beyond the scope of urgent care, and should be done at a primary care doctor’s office.
Urgent Care Network of Omaha clinics have x-ray machines on site. Our staff will view your x-rays to see if you have a broken bone, plus all of our x-rays are over-read by a radiologist for confirmation.
Cuts & Lacerations
Urgent Care Network of Omaha providers can treat many lacerations with stitches, skin glue, or surgical tape. However, deep cuts, where bone, tendon, or ligament damage is probable, should be treated at the ER.
Urgent Care Network of Omaha is in-network with most insurance plans, but we recommend you call the number on the back of your insurance card to verify this. For those with insurance, you pay your co-pay at time of service, and we will bill you, if there is any remaining amount.
Urgent Care Network of Omaha clinics can treat people who aren’t covered by insurance. We ask that you pay $100 up-front- if you pay the total bill that day we will give a 15% discount. If you can’t pay the full amount, we will set up a payment schedule for the remaining amount.
