Know before you go.
It’s important to know where to go for the type of medical care you may need. If you have a life-threatening situation, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency room. But if it’s not an emergency, comparing care options could help save you time, money and frustration. Compare your care options.
The emergency room is for the treatment of life-threatening conditions which require immediate medical attention. If not a true emergency, you may be responsible for the entire cost of the visit.
