Hospitals and Other Facilities

    You can visit one of our many in-network hospitals, labs, imaging centers and other facilities. They offer quality care while keeping your out-of-pocket costs low. To find an in-network hospital or facility near you, use our Doctor & Hospital Finder or the Horizon Blue app.

    Urgent Care Centers

    When you have a non-life-threatening injury or illness and can't see your doctor, an Urgent Care Center can often treat you faster with lower out-of-pocket costs than an Emergency Room (ER).

    With evening and weekend hours, Urgent Care Centers treat wounds, sprains and other health issues that need quick care.

    You do not need a referral to go to a participating Urgent Care Center, but you must pay your copayment, coinsurance and/or deductible.

    Please note: At participating Urgent Care Centers, routine office visits, including preventive care, sports physicals, routine obstetric services, occupational medicine and physical therapy services are not covered.

    For advice on how to decide when to visit an ER versus an Urgent Care Center, visit Where Can I Get Care section of our Member Education Center.
