Urgent Care

Quick, Affordable, Quality Care for Life's Curveballs

A healthy tip brought to you by UC Blue & Gold HMO

When you need health care right away, knowing your best option could save you time, worry and money. Just like it does for Alex.

Alex is doing yard work when he rolls his ankle. In minutes, his ankle is swollen and painful.

When life throws you a medical curveball, it's important to know your options. When you choose urgent care for non-emergency treatment, you can benefit just like Alex.

In an emergency, always call 911 immediately or go to the nearest ER.

Tip! Find the nearest urgent care center in the UC Blue & Gold HMO network using
