Healthy Hint

Toni-Ann DiSantis

It’s 3 a.m. and you’re running a high fever. Everything hurts and your doctor’s office is closed. We’ve all been there – wondering whether to go to the emergency room … or wait?

When you know it’s not a matter of life or death, an urgent care center or retail health clinic may be your best option. These facilities are often open after hours, seven days a week. Plus, they cost less and have shorter wait times than emergency rooms. Be proactive; find your closest in-network urgent care center or retail clinic before you get sick or hurt. The more you’re prepared, the faster you can get help when you need it!
