If you’re in need of urgent care treatment, know that Medicare Part B will typically cover most of your visit. Those with Medicare Part A do not receive full urgent care coverage, but the plan will help cover some associated costs, like lab tests. Those who have Medicare Advantage plans should review their individual policies for coverage, network, and cost details. In addition to our regular resources, we also provide several services related to Colorado’s COVID-19 outbreak. If you need a telehealth appointment, drive-through COVID-19 testing, or antibodies testing, schedule an appointment. Please know that most COVID-19-related services do not require insurance approval and do not have an associated charge.  

Medicare Urgent Care Frequently Asked Questions 

Health insurance can be difficult to navigate, especially if you’re a patient with Medicare or Medicaid. We get a lot of questions about how Medicare and Medicaid work, both within the walls of Rocky Mountain Urgent Care and more generally. Below, we’ve compiled some of the most common questions we receive, as well as some short, to-the-point answers. If you have any questions not covered in the below Medicare FAQ, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re more than happy to discuss specifics of your insurance plan and how we can best serve you.  

Does urgent care take Medicare? 

Rocky Mountain Urgent Care is proud to accept Medicare patients. Your exact out-of-pocket costs will depend on the type of Medicare plan you have. For example, if you have what is known as “Original Medicare,” which includes Part A and Part B, Medicare Part B will cover your visit. This piece of Medicare has a yearly deductible, which typically hovers around $200. Keep in mind that not all urgent care facilities accept Medicare.  

Does Medicare Part B cover urgent care? 

Yes, Medicare Part B will cover your urgent care needs once you hit the annual deductible. We recommend checking the Medicare.gov website to see current deductible rates. In 2020, it was set at $198.  

Is there a Medicare urgent care near me? 

Yes! If you live within driving distance of one of our Rocky Mountain Urgent Care facilities, then there is a Medicare urgent care near you. We have practices in Aurora, Boulder, Centennial, Englewood, Lakewood, and Westminster. Check our list of locations.  

Is there a Medicaid urgent care near me? 

If you live near a Rocky Mountain Urgent Care facility, then yes, you live near an urgent care center that accepts Medicaid. Keep in mind that not all urgent care clinics accept Medicaid.  

Does Medicaid cover urgent care? 

Yes. If you have Medicaid as health insurance, you will be able to receive urgent care services. However, we should note that not all urgent care providers will take Medicaid. Rocky Mountain Urgent Care is happy to offer services to folks who have Medicaid. Come see us.  

Can you go to any emergency room with Medicare? 

Yes. If you have Medicare, you will be able to visit an emergency room. This type of health insurance covers emergency room visits for sudden illnesses, progressive illnesses, and injuries. You will pay a copayment for each emergency department visit, as well as a copayment for any relevant hospital services provided. You will also pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount for the services the doctor provides. Medicare Part B will cover these emergency visit expenses after you meet the annual deductible. Here is a list of all emergency rooms and urgent care clinics in Denver Metro.  

When do I enroll in Medicare?

Your Medicare enrollment period will depend on your birthday. Your “Initial Enrollment Period” lasts for seven months – from three months before you turn 65 to three months after you turn 65. If you miss this Initial Enrollment Period you will have to wait to sign up until the general enrollment period, which runs from January 1 to March 31 each year.  

How do I enroll in Medicare?

If you are eligible to receive Medicare, you can sign up online via the Medicare.gov website. You can also call 1-800-MEDICARE (800-633-4227). Some Americans are automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A when they apply for retirement or disability benefits from Social Security. Still, if you are automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A, you will need to sign up for Medicare Part B if this is a service you want to use.  

What is the Medicare urgent care fee?

When you visit an urgent care clinic, your out-of-pocket cost will depend on the type of Medicare you have. If you have Medicare Part B, you will pay a copayment and 20 percent of the cost after your deductible. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, you will pay a flat co-payment.  

What Should I Do if I Don’t Have Insurance? 

Whether you missed the Medicare enrollment period or simply don’t have health insurance, Rocky Mountain Urgent Care can still provide treatment. We offer discounted rates to all patients who settle their bill in full at the time of service. We charge $150 for a basic visit, but patients may owe more depending on which services and/or tests are performed by our providers. We also offer payment plans for patients who may have trouble meeting healthcare costs at the time of their visit.
