NEED FOR URBAN URGENT CARE LOWER COST

Global Payment “One reason is that hospitals and large medical practices are entering “global payment’’ agreements, under which insurers pay them a flat amount of money for caring for a group of patients. As a result, providers are more motivated to care for patients at the least expensive location.”
