Getting care quickly

Sometimes you can’t plan for care ahead of time. If it’s an urgent situation, or you’re away from home and need care right away, we can help you find what you need.

Urgent care

For most members, an urgent care visit will save you money compared to the emergency room.

When you need care quickly, but it’s not a life threatening emergency, consider an urgent care center. These facilities specialize in treating things like cuts, sprains, fevers and similar health problems.
