Urgent Care Urgent care is care for an illness or injury serious enough to require immediate attention, but that does not require an emergency department or trauma center.
Underinsured The underinsured are those who may have some type of health insurance, but do not have enough to cover the cost of necessary healthcare. This includes those with very high deductibles or those with insurance policies.
