Choose the Right Care

How do you get quality healthcare while saving money? Where you go and who you see for treatment is a big part of meeting those needs.

Save Money By Staying in Your Network

Not all Blue Cross plans cover the same doctors, hospitals, clinics and labs. Before you get medical care, check to make sure you are going somewhere that is in your plan’s network. You will pay less out of pocket when you stay in your network, and you can avoid getting an unexpected bill.

Urgent Care Centers

If you have an illness or injury that you need to have looked at quickly, but it’s not an emergency, these centers have doctors who can treat you. Most urgent care centers have night and weekend hours, and the doctors there can often do X-rays, lab work or stitches.
