About Certified Urgent Care Centers

The Certified Urgent Care program was created in 2009 to answer the question: What defines an urgent care center?

Since then, the program has grown to more than 600 Certified Centers nationwide. As a result, more and more payers are taking note of the designation and accepting it in lieu of their own credentialing process.

Urgent Care facilities with the CUC designation have:

  • A Mark of Distinction to educate your community and stakeholders and eliminate confusion with other kinds of providers
  • A Tool for Negotiation to provide a national benchmark for discussing higher fee schedules
  • An Edge in Marketing to clearly and effectively describe your level of services

Benefits received upon approval:

  • Formal approval letter
  • Certified Urgent Care Center certificate
  • Certified Urgent Care Center window sticker
  • Certified Urgent Care Center pins for your staff
  • Outlines describing to your patients and payers what your CUC designation means
  • Printed sample of memo to payers
  • Printed press release sample
  • UCAOA will publicly congratulate your clinic in the Journal of
    Urgnet Care Medicine ( JUCM)
  • We will also recognize your certified status on www.ucaoa.org, on urgentcarecenter.org and via a national press release acknowledging all of the centers in your cohort.

Now is the time to distinguish your center – apply for Certification today!
