Take advantage of convenient, cost-effective medical care at your local walk-in clinic.
You're probably familiar with retail clinics—in supermarkets, stores or pharmacies like Walgreens and CVS. You can get your flu shot and your prescription filled while you also grab a few things you need at the store. It's a one-stop shop for your everyday needs.
With the retail clinic benefit, your copay at a retail clinic won't cost any more than an office visit copay and sometimes even less. For example, say your copay is $20 for an office visit—at a retail clinic, your copay will be $20 or less. This makes retail clinics a convenient, affordable option for some routine health care services.
To see if you have this benefit, reach out to Customer Service for details about your specific plan.
When should I go to a retail clinic?
You can head to a retail clinic for treatment of minor illnesses or injuries, or for screenings and tests. Some of the most common reasons for visiting a retail clinic include:
- Fevers and colds
- Rashes, bumps and scrapes
- Prescription refills
- Strep-throat or flu tests
- Physical exams for school, sports or a new job
How do I find a retail clinic in my network?
The easiest way to find a retail clinic that's in your network is to use Find a Doctor on regence.com. First create an account or sign in, so that your results are personalized to your benefits. Then, use Find a Doctor and search for "retail health" or "retail clinic" to find one nearby and in your network.
Get care while you're traveling
Retail clinics are also a good option when you're on the road and need routine health care. It can be reassuring and convenient to go to a store that you recognize.
Keep in mind that even though your local store might be in your network, other locations of the same store might be out-of-network. So, it's important to check the National Doctor and Hospital Finder to find a retail clinic when you're away from home.
