If you can't see your doctor, VUE your care
It's always best to talk to your doctor when you experience symptoms, but if that's not an option, VUE your care to determine if you need a virtual visit, urgent care or the emergency room.
Virtual care is a fast, convenient and affordable way to see a provider. Great for these types of symptoms:
- Allergies, bites and stings
- Sore throat, fever and headache
- Cold, cough and flu
If you prefer in-person interaction, retail health clinics serve as a great alternative to virtual care.
Visit urgent care facilities for non-life-threatening conditions that can't wait for an appointment. Examples of when you may visit an urgent care facility include:
- Minor broken bones and fractures in fingers or toes
- Sprains and strains
- X-rays and lab tests
Professionals can see you quickly and offer the right medical attention, right when you need it.
The emergency room (ER) is for emergencies or symptoms that can't wait. Go to the nearest ER when you're experiencing symptoms like:
- Bleeding that won't stop
- Pain in the chest or one arm
- Poisoning or drug overdose
- Seizure or slurred speech
- Broken bones
If you have an emergency and can't get to the ER, call 911 immediately.
