URGENT CARE – If your injury or illness is not life threatening, consider going to an urgent care center. Using urgent care centers is much more cost effective than going to the emergency room. There are many urgent care centers in the area. Only those referred by your primary care doctor would be under the HMO tier of the plan. Others would be PPO. Do some research, so that you have the information at hand should you need it.
Your first step is to discuss the issue with your primary care physician (named on your Anthem card) to find out where you should go if you need care and cannot get in to see your doctor. Ask about steps for obtaining an urgent care referral. Going to the urgent care is most cost effective under the HMO tier of your plan.
- You can also go to www.anthem.com/ca/nmusd and click on Urgent Care Centers to research PPO centers in your area. Always call them before you go to verify hours and confirm they are equipped to deal with your issue. Verify also that they are still an Anthem PPO provider.
