When you need health care right away, your first thought might be, “Go to the nearest emergency room (ER).” But not all situations are true emergencies. That’s why it’s important to know you have other options that cost less and are quicker such as:
Your primary care doctor. Always try them first during office hours in a non-life-threatening emergency.
Retail health clinics. Often found in major pharmacy or retail stores, your local retail health clinic can provide flu shots and help with mild rashes, fevers or colds.
Urgent care centers. These centers are accessible in many communities and are usually open on weekends and after hours. They can quickly handle nonlife-threatening, but urgently needed care, such as X-rays, lab tests and stitches.
LiveHealth Online. Use LiveHealth Online’s free app or go to livehealthonline.com for a private video visit with a board-certified doctor –no appointment necessary, short wait times. Doctors are available 24/7 to assess your condition and, if needed, can send a prescription to your local pharmacy.
