No Referrals Needed for Urgent Care
Please note that no referrals are needed to visit a network urgent care center. We suggest you visit an urgent care center instead of an emergency room, when possible. Going to a network urgent care center will lower your copayments and cut your time waiting to be seen.
Of course, if you think you are having a medical emergency - when there is blood loss, unconsciousness or a threat to life - you should call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Please refer to your Member Handbook to better understand what an emergency is.
