How is Urgent Care Different from Emergency Care?

When you need to go to the Emergency Room:

If you have a serious condition including stroke, heart attack, severe bleeding, head injury or other major trauma, call 911. Do not take a chance with anything life-threatening. The ER is the best place for these and other critical conditions, including:

  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Severe bleeding, burns, pain or head trauma
  • Loss of consciousness, shock, catatonic state
  • Sudden loss of vision or blurred vision
  • Compound fractures
  • Poison ingestion, seizures, snake bites, shock

Urgent Care Emergency Room
Medical Condition Non Life-threatening Life-threatening
On-site Lab Limited Yes
On-site X-ray Limited Yes
Overnight Stays No Yes

Urgent Care Services Offered

  • Walk-in care
  • X-rays
  • Illnesses and injuries including but not limited to sprains, breaks, colds, influenza, ear infections, bladder and urinary tract infections
  • Bites, burns, sunburns
  • Casts, splints, lacerations, suture removal
  • Fever or flu-like symptoms
  • Rash or other skin irritations
  • Ear and eye irrigation, breathing treatments
  • Travel health and immunizations
  • Work injuries (with prior authorization in writing from employer to seek treatment), pre-employment exams and drug testing.

Not all services are available at all urgent care locations. Additional site-specific services are available at each location. Visit the center's website or call the office for more information.

For urgent, non-emergency health issues during regular office hours, it is best to first call your primary care physician, whose practice can usually accommodate a same-day appointment. When it is not life threatening and you need to see a physician during non-office hours, UCLA's urgent care centers are your best option. 

What to Bring

Please have your medical information readily available, including a list of medications that you are currently taking. This information will help the doctor evaluate your health status. Please be sure to bring your insurance card and the name of your primary care physician, as well as photo identification such as a valid driver's license or California ID.

Fees, Billing and Insurance

Our urgent care centers accept Medicare and many insurance plans. Any required co-payments and/or deductibles will be collected at the time of service.

  • For patients with HMO insurance plans, please check with your health plan, primary care physician, or assigned medical group to see if your visit is covered.
  • If UCLA Medical Group is your assigned medical group, your visit will be covered.
  • For patients with insurance plans not contracted with UCLA, who do not have insurance, or who are from outside of the United States, payment is expected by cash, check or credit card at the time of service.

Zipnosis: Online Care in Minutes

In addition, for current UCLA patients, UCLA offers a new service:  Zipnosis. For a small fee, Zipnosis offers online diagnosis and treatment service by UCLA physicians for common medical conditions, seven days a week from 8 am to 8 pm. Ask questions about your illness and get a response from a UCLA physician in less than an hour. 

Emergency Care

If you or a family member is experiencing a potential life-threatening emergency, CALL 911. Following the arrival of the paramedics, you may request that they bring you or your family member to one of UCLA's medical centers. However, the paramedics will assess your condition and determine which facility is best for you.


UCLA ERs offer fast-track service for minor injuries and illnesses. FastER strives to treat patients who meet qualifying criteria within 90 minutes or less. Please note, however, that visits to the ER generally cost more than those to a doctor's office or an urgent care center.
