Where to get care—right care, right time, right place
Where do you go when you have an earache, sprain your ankle or develop a rash?
You have choices. And some choices are more practical than others. Some people automatically visit the emergency room when a walk-in clinic or a telehealth visit would be faster and more economical. Check out your care options below.
A few things to keep in mind:
- In general, it’s always a good idea to see, or at least call, your primary care provider.
- If you have a severe or life-threatening injury or illness go to the ER or call 911 immediately.
- If you or someone you know are experiencing a mental health crisis, call or text 988 as soon as possible.
