The State of Louisiana is considering charging co-pays for Medicaid patients who utilize the ER for non-emergency care.  UHC offers a walk-in Urgent Care Clinic that accepts Medicaid, open Monday – Friday, 5 - 9 p.m., and Saturday – Sunday, 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. No appointments necessary for the Urgent Care Clinic.  

Primary Care and Urgent Care are faster and less expensive than going to the ER.  UHC offers more primary care appointments in order to deter unnecessary trips to the ER. Call 261-6500 to schedule your Primary Care appointment.
