Cost and insurance
Get answers to common questions about paying for your MoGo Urgent Care visit.
Estimating the cost of your care
Plan to pay when you arrive if you’re responsible for all or part of the cost of your care. You may owe payment if:
- Your insurance has a co-payment (co-pay). Check with your insurance company about your coverage, but on average, most insurance co-payments range between $20 and $50
- You have a high-deductible insurance plan. These types of plans require you to pay your complete deductible (which may be anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000 or more) before coverage kicks in. If you’ve met your deductible, you won’t be charged anything at your visit. If you have not met your deductible, you will pay $250 for the visit, and this will be applied to your deductible
- You have a co-insurance plan. These plans typically require you to pay a deductible, but you must also pay a portion of the cost. For example, if your co-insurance — the percentage of the cost of a covered healthcare service that you pay — is 20 percent, and you have paid your deductible, you will pay $50 (20 percent of $250). If you have not met your deductible, you will pay $250, and that will be applied to your deductible. Some plans limit the amount they will pay for an urgent care office visit, so check with your insurance company
- You’re paying out-of-pocket or aren’t using insurance. You’ll pay a one-time, flat fee of $250 for most visits or $50 to $80 for a school or sports physical, depending on the type of physical and age of the patient
What does the flat fee include?
If you’re paying out-of-pocket for a regular urgent care appointment, MoGo makes care available with a flat fee of $250. This means you receive all the care you need at this price, including:
- An exam with a medical provider
- Prescribed medications or medical equipment
- Visit-related services, such as lab tests or X-rays, provided at MoGo so there’s no need to travel elsewhere
- Any needed follow-up care that takes place at the same MoGo location
How can I pay?
MoGo accepts most insurance plans, cash, and credit and debit cards. We do not accept personal checks.

Financial assistance and sponsored care
Our Sponsored Care or Discount Payment programs may cover all or part of your MoGo urgent care services if:
- Your health insurance doesn’t cover the services you need
- You have no health insurance and meet low-income or moderate-income requirements
If you cannot pay at the time of your visit, talk with a MoGo staff member about applying for either program. We’re happy to talk with you about the application process before your visit, as well. In some cases, your visit may need to wait until you receive approval of your application.
Sponsored Care program
If your family income is lower than 250 percent of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) federal poverty level, you may qualify for free care through our Sponsored Care program.
Discount Payment program
If your family income is less than 350 percent of the federal poverty level, you may qualify for a discount up to 71 percent off the MoGo flat fee.
How to apply for assistance
Ask any MoGo staff member for an application for either the Sponsored Care or Discount Payment program. You must also provide:
- Three months of recent pay stubs or last year's tax return to verify your own and your family members' income
- Information and documentation about the value of your monetary assets and any health benefits coverage you have
