Urgent Care services are typically billed as a physician or nurse practitioner visit, and your out-of-pocket costs are usually limited to the co-payment required by your health insurance plan. We will request payment of your co-payment when you check in for the visit.
For both physician office visits and hospital outpatient visits, your health insurance plan may require you to get a referral or authorization. In addition, Mass General Brigham providers may be considered “In Network” or “Out of Network” depending on the specifics of your health insurance plan, which could affect the amount you pay.
To be treated at our Urgent Access Clinic, you will need to be registered with Mass General Brigham. If you have received care at Nantucket Cottage Hospital in the past you are already registered. If you have not, please by call (866) 211-6588 to register.
Urgent Access appointments are intended for a range of symptoms, including:
• COUGHS, COLDS, OR SORE THROAT
• EAR AND EYE INFECTIONS
• MINOR INJURIES (SCRAPES, CUTS, MINOR BURNS, SPRAINS)
• MUSCLE/BACK PAIN
• TICK BITES
