You may not know what kind of care you’ll need or when you’ll need it, but you can find out now where to go for different types of care. Then when an issue comes up, you’ll know how to choose the most appropriate place for care that meets your needs.
Use the charts below to help you decide. They show average costs and wait times, as well as typical health issues, like skin problems, sore throat, sinus pain and flu.
Of course, when your injury or illness is serious or life-threatening, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
