Not sure if you should go to an urgent care center or an emergency room?

Here is a guide to help you make smart and cost effective choices:

Your Doctor’s Office or Clinic

Most often your primary care provider (PCP) should be your first choice for care. They know your entire medical history and a scheduled office visit is the most cost-effective method of care.
You should make an appointment with your doctor’s office for:
  • Common illnesses such as colds, flu, earaches, sore throats, migraines, fever or rashes
  • Minor injuries such as sprains, back pain, minor cuts and burns, minor broken bones, or minor eye injuries
  • Regular physicals, prescription refills, vaccinations, and screenings
  • All chronic problems that your provider is helping you manage

Urgent Care

While both urgent and emergency care situations are serious, there are important distinctions between the two. There are a few basic guidelines for determining whether your medical condition is an emergency, or simply a condition that needs immediate attention.  Urgent care is for symptoms, pain or conditions that are not severe or life-threatening and do not require use of a hospital or emergency room. Always contact your PCP first.
