What’s Ahead

The Urgent Care World Is Challenging
and Changing Rapidly

The Future

The First Challenge: Increased Cost of Doing Business
Due to their lack of scale, small and mid-sized urgent care companies have little bargaining power in the marketplace. They pay more for supplies and services and have less ability to negotiate favorable rates as compared to larger organizations. As the cost of doing business continues to escalate, small urgent care companies need a solution.

The Second Challenge: Lower Contract Reimbursement
In addition, small and mid-sized urgent care companies have little negotiating power in the current insurance contracting process. As the Accountable Care Organizations begin to dictate reimbursement, independent urgent care companies will lose any remaining ability to impact their reimbursement.
