Urgent Care is Convenient Care

When a medical issue doesn't require an Emergency Room visit, or if you can't get in to see your physician, you can visit an Urgent Care Center and get the care you need.

  • Shorter wait times
  • Convenient locations
  • Licensed professionals
  • Extended and weekend hours

If you are not sure where to go to get the care you need, contact your doctor. He or she will be able to help you decide where to go. Remember to contact your doctor after getting urgent or emergency services for any follow-up care you may need. Keep phone numbers for your doctor and nearest Urgent Care Center in a handy place, like your cell phone.

Urgently needed care may be furnished by in-network providers or by out-of-network providers when network providers are temporarily unavailable or inaccessible. You are covered for urgently needed care anywhere in the United States.
