Urgent care

Urgent care is defined as care you need for a non-emergency illness or injury that will not become a serious risk to health, but does require professional attention within 24 hours.

Conditions that should receive urgent treatment include earaches, sore throats, high fever or sprains. In many cases, the PCM can provide this care with a same-day appointment.

If a same-day appointment is not available, the PCM may recommend the beneficiary seek care at an urgent care center or convenient care clinic.
