Quote 
"Despite facing higher out-of-pocket costs for ER visits, individually insured members appear to be underutilizing retail clinics. Greater education efforts targeting those new to health insurance may be warranted as a way to increase awareness of the relative convenience and services offered by retail clinics and to clarify insurance plans' coverage of retail clinic visits."
-Maureen Sullivan, Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association chief strategy officer
 
Factoid 
"There are more than 3,000 retail clinics currently in operation with one in three consumers having visited one, according to a December 2016 report from PricewaterhouseCoopers' Health Research Institute (PwC)."
