Express Aid is an Urgent Care Center (UCC) that will be providing non-emergency care for the community of Riverside, California. With the expansion of Medicaid due to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) there has been a surge in Emergency Department (ED) usage which resulted in crowding, increased treatment time, and decreased patient satisfaction. Express Aid offers care ranging from primary care services to non-acute chest pain and functions as a walk-in basis. As a Limited Liability Company, Express Aid will function as a hybrid type of legal structure, which has the limited liabilities of a corporation as well as having the tax advantages and operational flexibility of a partnership. Express Aid will be the first center to open in an area where the population is increasing. Therefore, expenses and revenue will be forecasted based on competitors UCC needs, but will also take into account the future needs of the surrounding community. All forecasted finances are performed accurately by using conservative estimates, which will assist in properly developing an operational strategy.
