Lifespan Urgent Care Prompt-Pay Information

Injuries on the Job

A workers’ compensation case is opened if you are injured at your workplace. In these instances, you must pay out of pocket for your visit rather than using your health insurance, as the claim will be settled through your employer’s workers' compensation insurance.
