Accidents Happen

Epic bike ramp into the lake…what could go wrong?

Be ready to choose the right type of care when you have a wipeout.

EMERGENCY CARE: It’s life or death. Call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency room, for injuries that could be life-threatening, such as a head injury or severe bleeding.

URGENT CARE: Serious, but not life-threatening. For a broken bone or cut that needs stitches, choose an urgent care clinic. (Money-saving tip: Don’t go just anywhere! Log in to your account on and search for an in-network clinic, then save it to your contacts for quick access when you need it.)

VIRTUAL CARE: You need advice right now. Just bumps and bruises? Go to or call 1 (888) 725-3097. It’s available 24/7/365 and there’s no cost to you!

PRIMARY CARE: It can wait until morning. Call your doctor’s office to schedule an in-office or telehealth appointment. Log in to your account on to search for an in-network provider near you.
