(Newswire.net — August 21, 2014) Effingham, Illinois — Due to popular demand, Effingham Express Care, an Urgent Care center in Effingham, Illinois, is now partnering with Healthlink Insurance. Effingham Express Care’s goal is to provide patients with access to the best possible care at a convenient time, in an easy to access location and at affordable prices. Effingham Express Care understands that when people need urgent care, they do not want to have to worry about their finances. Medical care can be expensive, and dealing with the traditional ER system is incredibly stressful. They offer prompt medical care on demand, and Healthlink will ensure that you don’t need to worry about being faced with ever-mounting costs.

Effingham Express Care is a walk-in clinic that offers ambulatory care in a comfortable environment. Urgent care centers specialize in treating illnesses and injuries that are serious enough that the patient would not want to wait for a doctor’s appointment, but not so serious that they require an ER visit. They offer longer hours than a doctors office, and they are in a convenient location. The facility features rapid testing, on-site X-ray and a range of common prescription medications to cover most needs. Families and employers alike are encouraged to use urgent care clinics to avoid the long waits  to be seen at primary care physician office and avoid the stress of emergency room visits.

In addition to treating common injuries such as strains and sprains or broken bones and illnesses such as stomach pains, fevers and coughs, Effingham Express Care also offers immunizations, DOT certifications and physicals for school, sports and work. The facility is open from 9AM to 7PM Monday – Friday, and 10AM – 6PM on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Healthlink network covers a huge area, and they have now added Effingham Express Care to the list of providers that they are working with.  In addition to Healthlink, Effingham Express Care accepts many other major insurance plans, as well as Medicare.  Other accepted plans include Aetna, BlueCross BlueShield, Coventry Health Care, Cigna, Humana, Multiplan, Tricare and United HealthCare. In some cases, a co-pay may be charged, however the cost of the visit should be significantly lower than the cost of a trip to an emergency room. In addition, there is a 25% discount offered for payment at the time of service for patients who choose not to use an insurance plan.
