CHOOSING THE RIGHT PLACE TO GO FOR MEDICAL CARE

Don’t have a primary care physician?  Where you and your family go for health care does matter.  You could be spending needless time and wasting money by going to the wrong place like the emergency room for care.  When establishing a primary care doctor your care can include:
  • Annual wellness visit
  • Preventative Services
  • Treatment for illness or injury
  • Treatment for chronic conditions like asthma and diabetes
Finding a primary care provider and getting the right care is easier than you think.  You can go to www.bcbsm.com or go on Dashboard (go to My Benefits) or a mobile app to find an in-network provider. Not sure about a condition or the need to see a doctor?  You can call the BCBS 24/7 nurse line at 1-800-775-2583.  You will be talking to a registered nurse and it’s free! The average time of the call can be up to 12 minutes.  A lot shorter visit than at the emergency room. If you are unable to go to your doctor’s office, you can utilize in-network Urgent Care facilities for small co-pay.  The average time is under two (2) hours. Emergency Room visits are for life-threatening conditions, chest pain, possible broken bones, sudden blurred vision, poisoning, unconscious state to name a few.  If the visit does not warrant an emergency condition, you will be out-of-pocket hundreds of dollars and an average visit is over four (4) hours.
