When in doubt: VUE your care.

Your primary care provider (PCP) is usually your first choice for health questions or concerns. In your member account, you can schedule a visit with your PCP, message them questions or choose a new doctor. But sometimes seeing your doctor isn't an option, whether it’s because of scheduling or an emergency. When you can't see your doctor, VUE your care to determine if you need a virtual visit, urgent care or the emergency room.

    Urgent care. Visit an urgent care facility for non-life-threatening conditions that can’t wait for a PCP appointment but don’t warrant an emergency room visit. Conditions that may call for an urgent care visit include: minor broken bones and fractures in the fingers or toes, sprains, strains, X-rays and lab tests.

    Emergency room. The emergency room (ER) is for emergencies that can’t wait. If you have an emergency and can’t get to the ER, call 911 immediately. The ER is for your most critical concerns, such as bleeding that won’t stop, pain in the chest or one arm, poisoning or drug overdose, seizures or slurred speech.
