Things you need to know

When you're experiencing an illness or an injury, you often have a choice between different types of care—primary, urgent or emergency. Understanding these types of care can help you save money and get the most from your health plan.

Doctor's office Telemedicine Urgent care Emergency room
When to go
When you have any medical concern, your primary doctor knows you best and has your medical records. Your doctor oversees your care and can provide routine services and preventive exams. Your doctor can help you manage your medication and refer you to a specialist, if needed. When you have a non-emergent health condition and don’t want to leave your home or office, a virtual doctor’s visit is an option. Telemedicine lets you interact with a board-certified doctor at your convenience on your phone, tablet or computer. When you need care quickly, but it is not an emergency and your primary doctor may not be available. Urgent care centers offer treatment for non-life-threatening injuries or illnesses. When you need immediate treatment of a very serious or critical condition. The ER is for the treatment of life-threatening or very serious conditions that require immediate medical attention.
