Urgent Care Centers offer a great alternative to traditional office appointments, whereby a participants can seek quick care for non-life threatening conditions or illnesses.
Over the past two years, AmeriHealth New Jersey has worked on developing a network of Urgent Care Centers (UCC) throughout the state. These centers provide an alternative to an Emergency Room visit, providing services for strains, sprains, lacerations, etc. There are 56 UCC now contracted throughout the state, with others being reviewed for consideration for participation. To locate a UCC in your area, reference the “Urgent Care” selection on the AmeriHealth New Jersey online provider directory.
For less severe issues, members also have the option of visiting a Minute Clinic. With multiple locations throughout the state, Minute Clinics offer services for issues such as pink eye, abrasions, poison ivy, etc., as well as sports and school physicals. To locate a Minute Clinic in your area, reference “Retail Health” under the “Group/Clinic” selection of the AmeriHealth New Jersey online provider directory. As a reminder, many in network PCPs and Specialists also offer services for “urgent” situations as referenced above. Many offices also offer evening and weekend hours.
