Avera Urgent Care
What is an Urgent Care Center?
Avera Urgent Care is there to see your “urgent” need, to help reduce wait times, and provide access to medical care. You can use urgent care instead of an emergency room for treatment of non-threatening conditions.
Whether you are a visitor away from home, your regular clinic is closed, or you can't get a timely appointment with your physician, medical care is available at Avera Urgent Care. At Avera Urgent Care mid level providers offer office-based medical care for treatment of urgent, but non-emergent needs.
- Call ahead to confirm the clinic is open, 605-990-4357
- Closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Years Day

Payment due at the time of service
Payment of co-pay and/or co-insurance will be collected upon registration. For your convenience you may pay with cash, personal check, traveler's checks, money order, or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or American Express). Our billing office will file insurance claims on your behalf. After receiving an Explanation of Benefits from your insurance, you will be responsible for any difference between your remaining charges and the payment you made at the time of service.
Reduce out of pocket expense using Avera Urgent Care. Our fee schedule is based on a clinic structure and insurance co-pay is a clinic co-pay versus an emergency co-pay. Labs and x-rays are a part of the visit and depending upon your insurance MAY be included in your co-pay.
If you have no health insurance or present no insurance card, a minimum deposit of $50 is due at the time of registration. If you do not have insurance and/or you are not financially able to pay at the time of service, please contact Avera Medical Group Business Office at (605) 995-6337 to arrange a payment plan or seek financial assistance.
SD Medicaid Managed Care
Please be aware of the following rule from the SD Medicaid Recipient Handbook: "Acute care and urgent care clinics provide immediate care for acute illnesses and minor trauma on a walk-in basis. If you are required to participate in the Managed Care Program, you need to contact your PCP first before obtaining services at an acute care or urgent care clinic. If your PCP determines the need for services, the PCP will contact the acute care or urgent care clinic and give the referring information. If you obtain services at an acute care or urgent care clinic without referral, you will be responsible for the services rendered."
