Where to Get Care

Healthcare is more than just a visit to the doctor—choosing the right type of care can save you time and money.

Nurse Lines

A phone call could save you money and an emergency room visit. Instead of relying on the internet for self-diagnosis, pick up the phone and talk to a registered nurse. This free, 24/7 service is available to our members through Intermountain Health Answers and St. Luke’s nurse lines, which are staffed by registered nurses. Get help determining how and where to get the best care.

Your Network

A network is the group of providers doctors, hospitals, and other clinicians who are part of your insurance plan. To get the most from your benefits, see providers that participate in your network. To make sure your provider is in your network, present your ID card when receiving care. If you get services from a provider that isn't on your plan, you may be responsible for excess charges (this is called balance billing), and they may bill you directly for charges that are not covered by your plan. Learn more about Network Providers.

Your Primary Care Doctor

We encourage you to find a primary care provider. These doctors can help you:

  • Manage your overall health
  • Get preventive care


Urgent Care
