Benefits of urgent care centers

We've recently partnered with CareWell, an urgent care center (UCC). You can go to CareWell and most UCCs for non-life-threatening injuries instead of going to the emergency room (ER). CareWell is an alternative to a primary care visit, especially if you need care after your primary care provider's office hours.

The benefits of a UCC are:

  • Less wait time
  • Less expensive than an ER visit (it typically costs the same as a primary care visit)
  • No appointments needed

Before going to a UCC, you should contact your primary care provider to find out your best option. To find UCCs in our provider network, use our Find a Doctor, Hospital, or Pharmacy tool.
