Urgent Care Centers have been around for years, but their role is likely to expand under Affordable Care Act. Business Journal contributing writer Justin Catanoso discusses the new law’s impact on both the centers and hospitals with WFDD's Audrey Fannin. Justin is also director of the Wake Forest University journalism program.

Urgent care centers will likely play a greater role under the Affordable Care Act, as more people will have insurance and seek care outside hospital emergency rooms.
