UHC Urgent Care Clinic Medicaid

UHC Urgent Care Clinic

Make the new UHC Urgent Care Clinic your choice. The Urgent Care Clinic is Lafayette's largest urgent care walk in clinic that accepts Medicaid.  

Faster than ER.  Accepts Medicaid with NO extra costs.  No appointment necessary. 

Our urgent care walk-in clinic is a great place to visit for medical needs that cannot wait for an appointment. We know medical issues don't just pop up during normal business hours. We are an after hours walk in clinic providing convenient care in the evening and on weekends to patients with Medicaid.

Sometimes it's hard to know if you should seek emergency care, urgent care or schedule an appointment with your doctor. View our guide to emergency care to learn where to go. 

The new Urgent Care Clinic sees patients on a walk-in basis with no appointment needed.  Patients are seen on a “first come first serve” basis with minimal wait time.
