Getting Care Without an Office Visit

Many times you can have your healthcare needs taken care of without actually seeing a doctor in person.

  • Advice Nurse: 1-877-661-6230 option 1
    The advice nurse will help you decide if you need emergency or urgent medical care and can give you valuable advice to care for your illness or injury at home. The advice nurse can also arrange for you to have a telephone consultation with a doctor.
  • Send a Message to Your Provider on myccLink
    If you have a non-urgent health issue, you can send a message to your doctor and primary care team on myccLink.
  • Request a Telephone Appointment
    Some of our providers have telephone clinics. You may elect to have an appointment scheduled for your provider to call you at your convenience. You can schedule phone appointments through the central Appointment Unit or myccLink.
