4. Urgent Care
If your condition isn’t life-threatening, but also can’t wait until an appointment with your primary health care provider, consider a visit to urgent care. Urgent care is a good option for:
- Episodes of asthma
- Back pain
- Moderate burns
- Eye irritations
- Migraine headaches
When visiting an in-network urgent care or after-hours clinic, you’ll use your Avera Health Plans office visit benefit, which provides you with significant savings.
5. Emergency Services
Emergency care is for life-threatening situations, or severe injuries or illnesses that cannot wait.
When you have the option, please choose an in-network hospital when going to the emergency room to keep your expenses to a minimum.
