Questions and Answers
If I visit a walk-in location, how quickly will I be seen?
Depending on the number of people being served at the time of your visit, walk-in locations may require a wait time to see a provider.
What's the difference between same-day and urgent care?
Same-day, call-ahead appointments are for those who are sick or need care. Plan members can call a clinic of their choice to be scheduled in an open appointment spot (clinics may refer to the visit as “acute care” for the treatment of a routine illness or injury). Same-day, call-ahead appointments are covered by the health plan with standard co-pays and deductibles.
Urgent care is for patients who have a complex injury or illness that requires immediate care but is not serious enough to warrant a visit to an emergency department. Urgent care visits are covered by the health plan with standard co-pays and deductibles. Urgent care visits are typically higher cost than same-day or walk-in care co-pays.
