Our clinics give you a cheaper and more convenient alternative to emergency rooms and urgent cares, while still offering most of the same services. With the ability to walk in and make an appointment, you can come in at any time – including evenings and weekends. MinuteClinic® provides quality health care for adults and children over 18 months. We treat a wide range of conditions and illnesses to ensure that you and your family get well and stay well. Some of our services include TB testing, flu shots, and sports physicals . Come in for a MinuteClinic visit and receive quality health care on your schedule!

How Much is a MinuteClinic Visit at 1239 EAST PUTNAM AVE. RIVERSIDE, CT with and without Insurance?

MinuteClinic® prices in RIVERSIDE range anywhere from $35 to $250 depending on the service, which makes us 40% cheaper than urgent care centers. Please visit our service price list and insurance information page to see detailed pricing and insurance breakdowns. At CVS MinuteClinic®, most insurance plans are accepted. We recommend contacting your insurance company prior to your visit to be sure that the service you are seeking will be covered. How much you will have to pay out of pocket will depend on your insurance coverage. If you do not have insurance or prefer to pay out of pocket, you may pay with cash, card, or check. Prices may vary depending on the complexity of the case. Lab tests and additional services may result in additional charges.

Can’t make it in for a visit? We also have Video Visits, which enable you to see one of our health care professionals from the comfort of your own home as an alternative for just $59 per visit. Currently, a Video Visit is not covered by insurance and is not required to get treatment.

The Riverside area teems with opportunities for you to get in tune with nature, explore cultural and historical niches, soak in sights of local wildlife and enjoy fabulous food and wine.

But what happens if you get hurt or sick on one of those adventures? Say that you’re hiking at Rosa Hartman Park and strain a muscle. Or you’re looking forward to a night in New York City, but your allergies keep you sneezing.

MinuteClinic® may be the solution. Our medical professionals can dive in at a moment’s notice seven days a week to help with minor illnesses, injuries and skin conditions. What’s more, we administer vaccinations, do pre-travel consultations and focus on women’s services. Find our clinic about halfway between the Mianus River and Rosa Hartman Park. We’re right off Interstate 95.

Wait times posted online and other conveniences

Walk-in availability seven days a week and on evenings and weekends is great, but what if the lines happen to be long? No problem! Just check our MinuteClinic® website for the approximate wait time. If it’s too lengthy, you often have the option to schedule an appointment for later in the day, effectively “holding” your place in line.

You may also be able to schedule an appointment for another day. So, if you need to be seen right away, you might prefer to just walk in, but if it’s a flu shot or sports physical that you want, making an appointment may fit better with your lifestyle (you can still walk in for these reasons, though!).

Our other planning/convenience aids include:

  • Online price lists so you can see treatment and procedure costs upfront
  • Affordable prices to help you budget
  • Preliminary insurance plan check online (we accept most insurance plans and welcome uninsured patients)
  • Payment options that include online pay, credit card, check and cash
  • Visit summary sent to your doctor (with your OK)
  • Location inside CVS Pharmacy® for streamlined access to prescriptions, other medications and health care items

Cough, poison ivy, flu shots, even ear wax removal: Many reasons to visit the clinic

Our MinuteClinic® specializes in family health care. If you or your children (at least 18 months old) need help with conditions such as allergies, pink eye, nausea, diarrhea, mouth pain, STDs, strains, sprains, joint pain or bug bites or stings, we should be able to help. The same idea goes for skin conditions such as shingles, sunburn, lice, impetigo, poison ivy and poison oak, ringworm and mouth sores.

Of course, part of family health care is preventing serious conditions. To that end, we administer flu shots and vaccinations to protect against pneumonia, meningitis, polio, tetanus and other illnesses. Our women’s services include birth control care, pregnancy evaluations and treatment for various infections.

Here’s a sampling of what else we offer:

  • Physicals for college and sports
  • General medical exams
  • One-time medication renewals
  • TB testing
  • Titers and immunity testing
  • Pre-travel consultations
  • Help with avoiding traveler’s diarrhea and motion sickness
  • Help with conditions such as asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure
