Sometimes it may be difficult to decide if a sudden illness or injury needs immediate emergency care. Choosing the right health setting – Primary Care Physician, Urgent Care, or Emergency Room is important; knowing which provider to see, depending on the medical situation, can save you time and money. Primary Care Physician When you or a loved one is hurt, you want the best care. Your primary care physician knows you and your health history. He or she can access your medical records. And, he or she can provide you follow-up care or refer you to specialists. If it’s not urgent, it’s usually best to go to your own physician’s office. Urgent Care Sometimes you may need care fast. But, your Primary Care Physician may be unavailable. You may want to try an urgent care center. They can treat many minor ailments. Chances are, you won’t have to wait as long as at an emergency room. You may pay less, too. An urgent care center can help with: • Sprains & Strains • Minor broken bones (example: finger) • Minor infections • Small cuts • Sore throats • Rashes Emergency Rooms You may be tempted to go to an emergency room (ER). But, this may not be the best choice. At the ER, true emergencies are treated first. Other cases must wait–sometimes for hours. And, it may cost you more. Go to an ER for: • Heavy bleeding • Large open wounds • Sudden change in vision • Chest pain • Sudden weakness or trouble talking • Major burns • Severe head and spinal injuries • Difficulty breathing • Major broken bones 9 Definitions Below, you will find a definition of what’s considered a medical emergency for the purpose of plan benefits in addition to other relevant terms that will help you navigate your benefit plan. ANCILLARY CHARGE means a charge, in addition to the Copayment and/or Coinsurance, that the Covered Person is required to pay when a covered Prescription Drug Product is dispensed at the Covered Person’s or the Physician’s request, when a Chemically Equivalent Prescription Drug Product is available on a lower tier. For Prescription Drug Products from Network Pharmacies, the Ancillary Charge is calculated as the difference between the Prescription Drug Cost or MAC list price for Network Pharmacies for the Prescription Drug Product on the higher tier, and the Prescription Drug Cost or MAC list price of the Chemically Equivalent Prescription Drug Product available on the lower tier.
