What is Texpress Urgent Care?

By Rebecca F. Tullar

What exactly is an “Urgent Care”? You see it listed on your insurance card between PCP and Emergency Room. You can find them popping up all over the Houston area. BUT did you know there is one right here in Huntsville Texas?

Urgent Cares are the bridge between Primary Care (monthly/yearly maintenance) and Emergency Care (life or death).

Texpress Urgent Care is a walk-in clinic that can treat your allergies/hay fever, sinusitis, sore throat, flu, cough, asthma exacerbation, abscess drainage/infection care, laceration care(stitches, staples, gluing and steri-strips),sprains/strains, broken bones, digital on-site x-rays, on-site blood draws/lab work, IV hydration, gastrointestinal pain, toenail removal, ear ache, eye infections, back pain, vomiting, fever, bronchitis, urinary tract infection, STD, yeast infection, headache, poison ivy, diarrhea, bite, sting, minor burn, scrapes and cuts, drug test, pregnancy test, TB test, TD/TDAP vaccine, shave passes, as well as immunizations and sports physicals. These are just some of the many services we provide.

Whether you are insured or cash-pay the cost is much lower to come to an Urgent Care rather than an ER. Our copays are normally $0-$50 (depending on your insurance company) over normal ER co-pays that start at $200-$500. Currently BCBS is reviewing ER bills for certain plans and will deny claims for non-life threatening events. It is likely this trend will continue throughout all insurance networks.

You’ll never pay out of pocket above our cash-pay prices. Our cash-pay prices start at $125 but do not exceed $350(We notify all patients prior to treatment of the cost).

Additionally, Texpress Urgent Care is an active part of our local community. We proudly partnered with SHSU and HISD Athletics, offer First Responder discounts, a LEO friendly environment and donate to local scholarships and charity’s.

SO if you need urgent medical care, want a quick but efficient visit, at an affordable/informed cost, come to Texpress Urgent Care. Let us get you back to your busy life.

Texpress is a privately owned small local business with one location to serve you and your family. “
