Urgent & Emergency Care Weekend Closure

When to go to the Urgent Care Clinic:

Urgent care is care you need for a non-emergency illness or injury. You need urgent care treatment within 24 hours, and you shouldn't have to travel more than 30 minutes for the care. You typically need urgent care to treat a condition that: 
  • Doesn’t threaten life, limb or eyesight.
  • Needs attention before it becomes a serious risk to health.
Examples may include things like a high fever or sprained ankle.

Nurse Advice Line

If it's after hours or you're not sure if you need to see a doctor, call TRICARE's Nurse Advice Line 24/7. Call 1-800-TRICARE (874-2273) — Option 1 to talk to a registered nurse who can:
  • Answer your urgent care questions
  • Give you health care advice
  • Help you find a doctor
  • Schedule next-day appointments at military hospitals and clinics
The Nurse Advice Line is available to all TRICARE beneficiaries in the U.S. except those enrolled in the US Family Health Plan.
