Urgent Care & Telehealth
What you need to know
Can’t wait to see a doctor? Urgent care and telehealth services help you quickly connect with affordable care.
When you need immediate care for an illness or injury, you can visit the nearest YNHHS walk-in facility or a PhysicianOne Urgent Care center (CT locations only). To locate an urgent care center close to you, visit HRConnect and search for urgent care.
You’ll pay a $25 copay when visiting a YNHHS facility, and you’ll pay more if you use other providers.
Telehealth is an ideal alternative for immediate treatment of an illness or injury when you can’t get to a doctor’s office or urgent care center.
You and your covered family members can visit a doctor virtually, wherever you are, whenever you need care—via phone, tablet, or computer. If you need medication, the doctor can even send a prescription to your pharmacy (within Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island).
Use the telehealth services below to connect to care outside the usual office hours. Telehealth is not an alternative to emergency care for a life-threatening condition.
See one of our own Northeast Medical Group (NEMG) providers weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET, excluding holidays. To get started, download the MyChart mobile app.
The NEMG providers you see OnDemand can:
- Diagnose symptoms
