Motorcycle accident and hit head, got X-ray at urgent care. Should I go to get CT scan even though it's been 4 hours and no nausea? No insurance...

In brief: Head trauma
If you have no signs of nausea, or sleepiness, or change in behavior or appetite - you need only to avoid further injuries.

In brief: Brain injured?
For head trauma in the presence of concussion or persistent neurologic deficits, ct scan, not skull x-ray should have been done.
If you are several days past the injury and have neither headache or neurologic symptoms, further brain imaging is not likely to be helpful.
