If you think you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911.

This payment is just a co-pay and will not cover any radiology or complex lab charges outside of UC. Those will be billed separately if performed. Insurance plan details will vary depending on the particular policies. Each visit to the office is billed to your insurance company by our billing office.
