What Is Urgent Care?

Urgent care centers are an alternative option to the more traditional healthcare facilities. When a health issue requires timely attention but does not warrant a trip to a hospital or your primary care provider, urgent care can help.

What about physician’s offices? It can be very difficult to make an appointment at a private practice — not the cast with an urgent care clinic.

You may choose an urgent care visit at our Baker location to receive medical attention for any of the following:

  • Accidents and falls
  • Cuts and smaller wounds that may need stitching

  • Sinus infections

What Is Prevention and Wellness Care?

Maintaining a current state of good health and trying to shape the future of your health are the central strategies in prevention and wellness care. 

The most basic forms of prevention include things like check-ups, immunizations, and health screenings. This category also includes COVID testing and receiving your COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Complete blood count (BCB)

How Much Do Lab Services Cost?

Visiting a Fast Pace Health medical center is a great option if you need to have a physical done. The two main types of physical we offer are:

  1. The physical required for all DOT (Department of Transportation) employees.
  2. Any physicals that are required for participation in a sport or activity.

We will also send you home with any paperwork you need.

Reserve Your Spot in Line at Our Baker Location

Our walk-in clinic works on a first-come, first-served basis — when patients come in without an appointment, they are put in a short virtual queue. However, you can opt to schedule a specific appointment time if you are planning on coming in ahead of time. This will ensure that you are at the front of the line at your selected time and get the medical care you need.

Does the Baker Location Take My Insurance?

We most likely accept whatever private insurance plan you are part of, and we accept government-funded plans like Medicare. Your co-pay, coinsurance, and deductible are due at the time of your visit.

Not having insurance should not deter you from coming in to see us. We can assist those who are paying out of pocket to create the most cost-effective plan. Our Simple Self-Pay Program allows you to pay an upfront office visit fee, which includes all in-house lab testing and procedures for urgent and primary care needs.

How Can I Verify My Insurance?

There are three simple ways you can check your insurance status before check-in.

  1. Ask a patient service representative about your insurance online by using our “chat” portal. You can find it within the “contact us” section on our site — it will allow you to text message any questions or concerns you may have.
  2. You can also verify coverage with Fast Pace Health by calling the phone number on the back of your insurance card. A representative from the company will be able to get you the info you are looking for.
  3. Someone from our front desk can also help you confirm insurance coverage — simply call us ahead of your visit or talk with a team member in person when you arrive.
Can I Pay Online for My Visit to the Baker Clinic?

Yes. Go to our site and locate the “bill pay” tab inside the main navigation menu. There, you’ll be able to pay outstanding service fees.
