How does UI QuickCare work?
UI QuickCare is a walk-in medical clinic available to anyone in the community. It should not replace regular visits to your doctor. However, when you are ill, but don’t need an emergency room or can’t get to your regular doctor, UI QuickCare is a convenient choice open to anyone more than 6 months old. No appointment necessary.

UI QuickCare services are affordable and payment is due at the time of service. Insurance is not required, but most plans are accepted. Cash and credit cards are also accepted.
What can I be treated for?
UI QuickCare services are geared toward common illnesses like earache, strep throat, and the flu. If you need medical care outside the conditions we treat, you’ll be referred to your primary care doctor or to an emergency room, depending on your illness.
What happens after my UI QuickCare visit?
Your UI QuickCare provider may refer you to your primary care doctor. If you don’t have a regular primary care doctor, we’re happy to help you find one who meets your needs.
