Knowing where to go in a health crisis can save you time and money. Here's a quick guide to help you determine whether the ER, your family doctor, an urgent care center or a 911 call is your best choice.

Outpatient Centers - Urgent Care, Hospitals - Emergency Medicine

Urgent care clinics are gaining popularity as a way of treating minor injuries and illnesses. This trend relieves demands on hospitals’ emergency rooms, leaving more room for treating serious issues.

Angie's Answers

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had

I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.

I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.

Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

I arrived at approximately 9:30 pm. I was unable to stand or walk because of the dehydration and lightheadedness. I asked if there was somewhere that I could lie down and I was told no, that I would have to use the chairs in the lobby. It was approximately 1.5 hours before I was even seen by a triage nurse although I was still vomiting and unable to keep even water down. After being seen by the triage nurse, I again had to wait in the lobby with no where to lie down. I ended up having to lie on the floor because I could not keep myself upright in a chair. My wife had to go and ask a receptionist for blankets since I was chilling due to the dehydration (she is an RN). I was not taken back for treatment until 2.5 hours after the triage nurse saw me. From there on, the staff was friendly and courteous as they gave me an IV and anti nausea medication. I was able to walk out on my own around 3am. A few weeks after, I received the bills. Over $1400 for the ER visit and over $400 for the emergency doctor, who never even examined me. The emergency doctor's bill was separate from the ER bill and they got the wrong insurance information on the bill. I called to discuss the ER bill and was told flat out that I had received the services, so I must pay the bill even though the service was lousy. The customer service rep tried to tell me that I had received the insurance benefit and that I was liable for the balance. When I explained that I am in medical billing as my business and that the "insurance payments" were actually the difference between book rates and their contracted rate with the insurance company, I was told that this is considered a discount and therefore I received my insurance benefit even though they paid nothing and I am responsible for the entire balance. I disputed some charges on the bill and asked if the bill would be placed on hold during the dispute. I was told that the billing would continue and that the bill could go to collection even though it is in dispute, but that "our reviews are quick and will be done in 5 business days". I complained to the parent organization about the quality of care I received while in the ER. I was told that they take these things very seriously and that I would receive a phone call to follow up. Three weeks later I have yet to receive a call. When I asked how I could reduce the bill, I was told "don't go to the ER in the future. If you want a smaller bill, go to Urgent Care." The only problem is that urgent care centers are closed after 8pm. If you have a serious condition or are suffering a heart attack, I would not go to

Treatment and service was exceptional. Payment for services rendered not so much. This is the first local business that I patronized that refused payment for services rendered with a local check.

apparently has a third party business (TELE-CHECK) in Houston Tx received and cash checks from their clients. If the client or the client?s bank does not have an account with TELE-CHECK, payment is refused. In addition to refusing my payment, TELE-check stated that Member?s 1st did not meet the regulatory requirements for TX. Since my Debit Card (and credit card) are tied to the same local institution, I was informed by TELE-Check that they wouldn?t be accepted either. The only way that I could pay

was by cash. This was extremely inconvenient. Based on this I give them a minimal approval.

They were referred by the urologist who was treating our son. They are an excellent hospital, they have a children's ER and a strong children's floor. Our care providers, the doctors and nurses as well as the sociologist were all excellent in terms of providing recommendations They were coaching my son and make recommendations for him to cope with his migraines. In addition to the professional medical care they were also very helpful to us as a family in terms of dealing with his migraine illness.

Charlottesville Er Doctors Provider Name Locked
Hospital Beamuont, TX .. Where m Father was sent by his PCP for sudden onset oc congestive heart failure at approx 4:45pm.No ER rooms available. Waited hours to be put in ER room briefly saw the doctor for no longer than 3 minutes. Rushed thru, while he read other patients charts and signed paperwork as he said he wuld take care of some paperwork. He would not look at meds my husband took in and was only going by his old med list that was wrong and he was told it was wrong. He dismissed it as that is what we got, that is what we are using.....Did not even have his breathing treatments, that we had to beg to get him..Asked if his pulmonary dr would be called in, he laughe and said those drs don't have time to be bothered with patients in the Hospital, that is what I am for and rushed out...He proceeded to stand outside the door and visit with the other dr on call there..and visit about non medical non-patient stuff...He acted like his butt was on fire to get out and then"visited directly in front of us.
