InQuickER: Appointment-Based ER Visit

Old and busted: waiting half-a-day to see the doctor in the Emergency Room.

The new hotness: InQuickER (get it?), a pay-to-be-seen-faster system that lets you make an appointment to go to the ER.

Fees for the service, called InQuickER, range from $14.99 to $24.99 and are in addition to other costs for the emergency room visit. Officials at the Nashville-based company said that since the system was launched in 2006, 95% of appointments have been kept successfully. Patients must be 18 or older to make an appointment. Those with life-threatening symptoms such as chest pains are told to proceed directly to the emergency room.

When will people get it though their thick head a ER is not for non emergencies. Go to a GP instead. It is far cheaper and you will actually know your doctor if you go often.
