First ask yourself, how much is your time worth? Visiting doctors, urgent care centers, or ERs is time-consuming, full of hassles, and time off work. And waiting for doctor appointments is stressful.
However, if you go see a traditional doctor in your neighborhood, urgent care center, or ER, you must pay your co-pay and then pay the bills you’ll receive in the mail afterward, until you spend your entire deductible*. The average cost to you for traditional visits are:
- PCP visit (~$20 co-pay + bills) = $225
- Urgent care ($50 co-pay + bills) = $350
- ER ($100 co-pay + bills) = $2,000
So if you need one visit to a PCP and then another for a follow-up, that’ll cost you $450.
How much does Sherpaa cost?

How much do people spend on healthcare?
71% of people spend less than $1,000 on healthcare per year. And 90% of us spend less than $5,000. If it’s likely you won’t spend your deductible, spend your money on convenient care that makes your life easier, like Sherpaa.
