There is an affordable alternative to emergency room visits for non life-threatening health issues: Urgent Care Centers. While a trip to the ER can cost thousands of dollars for a single visit, urgent care facilities offer the exact same care at a cost that's typically a quarter of the price of an ER bill. Furthermore, compared to a visit to your primary care provider, the cost of urgent care is generally about the same.
Physical examinations are often required to participate in organized athletic programs. In the sports medicine field, the sports physical exam is known as a preparticipation physical examination (PPE). The exam helps determine whether it's safe for you to participate in a certain sport.
