Why Do These Clinics Exist?

With 40 million people lacking health care, RBCs are good for those who don’t have health care and/or who cannot afford costly ER visits for a minor health issue. Because RBCs services on average cost between $40-$70, the lower price can help low-income Americans. Also, RBCs are good for those with insurance, but don’t want to wait for a doctor’s appointment.
