When you need Urgent Care

Where and when should I go for Urgent Care?

Call your primary care physician whenever possible before seeking Urgent care attention. Additionally, most health plans offer a 24-hour nurse consultation and care advice line to help direct your care. The number is located on the back of your medical ID card.

There are occasions when unforeseen medical problems occur while your physician’s office is closed. Illnesses that cannot wait until the next business day, but do not require the full services of a hospital or emergency room, are best treated at an Urgent Care. Conditions of this nature may include:

  • Sore throat or ear aches
  • Fever
  • Minor injuries, burns, and lacerations
  • Skin infections and rashes
  • Minor fractures or broken bones
  • Backaches
  • Frequent urination
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Persistent vomiting
  • Abdominal pain or cramping
  • Allergic reactions
  • Insect or animal bites
  • Sports injuries
  • Sinus problems/other upper respiratory infection

The Urgent Care facilities included in the Greater Tri Cities IPA network are listed below:

Please be aware that the Urgent Care is not to be used as a substitute for calling your PCP’s office for an appointment, as the Urgent Care visit may not be covered.
