Walk-in clinic services and payment options

Scripps HealthExpress accepts most health insurance plans, and your visit is billed to your insurance plan as a primary care office visit (excluding sports and camp physicals), as well as any tests in the office. These charges may include things such as rapid strep test, blood glucose and X-rays. If additional tests or X-rays are needed, you will be billed separately.

When you are paying out-of-pocket or making a co-pay, we accept credit cards, cash and checks. Pricing below reflects the “cash pay” option for patients who opt to pay out-of-pocket for their visit and do not intend to submit a claim to insurance.
