Emergency care can save your life if you’re critically sick or injured. For less severe complaints, you may get faster and less expensive treatment by heading to an urgent care center.
Urgent care centers treat a wide variety of illnesses and injuries. To find out if an urgent care visit is needed, contact your primary care physician (PCP) first. Your PCP’s contact information is listed on the front of your Sharp Direct Advantage member ID card.
If an illness or injury is severe or if you need care immediately, the emergency room (ER) is the right choice. ERs are equipped and staffed to handle complex and critical care needs.
When you’re home in our plan service area: Urgent care visits must take place at an urgent care center in your plan medical group. Remember to call your PCP first before you visit urgent care.
When you’re away outside our plan service area: Visit a convenient urgent care center near you. After your urgent care visit, your PCP may want to see you when you return.
Send a message to Customer Care, or call us at the phone number on the back of your Sharp Direct Advantage member ID card.
