Because Your Health Counts

Because Your Health Counts

It’s important to know where to go when you need care. Sometimes it’s clear where to go, such as when you’re having severe chest pain or you’ve broken your leg. At other times, it’s not so clear. Knowing where to go or who to call when you need medical care (even when it’s not an emergency) can mean the difference in cost and time. It could also save your life or the life of someone you love!

If you aren’t having an emergency, knowing where to go for medical care may save you on cost and time. You have choices for where you get non-emergency care — what we call SmartER CareSM options. Use these places instead of the emergency room (ER). Plus, when you visit in-network providers, you may pay less for care. It’s good to learn about your choices now, so you’re prepared the next time you need care.
