For an urgent care?

From what I'm reading its free but I just looked at the claim and it says I owe the urgent care 50 bucks.

I can't read it, it's too small. Urgent care usually has a copay.

I do see that, and they charged me 50 but then what does it mean when it says no charge?

Sadly I've called and emailed blue cross and even they can't tell me

It's the 5th line down. It says both no charge and then copay may apply

most times, unless you're sent to the hospital for admission, there's a copay. Only if you're admitted to the hospital is there no charge.

Did you go to an in-network urgent care?

Yep, if it's an even $50, it's most likely a copay.  

If it was out of network, you'd owe 20% (possibly in addition to the copay), but that's usually not an even amount like $50.  It's possible, just not as likely.  (It's kind of like checking out at the grocery store and your total being an even $50.)

See that's the thing. It was an in network copay so it says no charge. Then under the same headline copay may apply. How do I know when it will apply and when it won't? Hell even blue cross can't tell me

So then I assume that any urgent care is 50?

I swear usually I know this stuff but right now its so confusing and its scary that with my info in front of them blue cross still can't give me the information
