Urgent & After-Hours Care

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

When illness strikes after your doctor’s office has closed for the day, it can be hard to know what to do. Do you go to an emergency room? Wait until Monday? Before you race to the ER, consider that 30% of health problems seen in the emergency room could be treated at an urgent care center.

So what do you do?

For issues that are not life-threatening, you should first call your primary care provider. You may also call your insurance plan’s 24-hour help line that’s staffed with nurses who can determine the seriousness of your condition and recommend the best way to get needed care. Most insurance plans list the phone number for the nurse line on your insurance card.
