What if I need emergency care?

An emergency is a sudden and unexpected medical condition, or the worsening of a condition, which poses a threat to life, limb or sight, and requires immediate treatment. It can also be defined as a sudden, extremely painful condition which requires immediate treatment to alleviate suffering.

If you need emergency care, go directly to the emergency room at the nearest hospital, or call 911.

If you do go to an emergency room or receive care outside of your Medical Home, contact your Medical Home team as soon as you can. By keeping your health care team informed you help the team better coordinate your care and ensure that you get the follow-up that you need.

What’s different about a medical home?

Each patient partners with a primary care clinician and nurses who take responsibility for your health and coordinate care with an extended team of behavioral health professionals, pharmacists, subspecialists and others. Your core team works with you over time to take care of new health concerns as they arise, ensure delivery of preventive screening and services, manage chronic health problems, and promote a spirit of health and wellness. This relationship – between each patient and his or her health care team is the heart of the Medical Home.

Enhanced role of Nursing

When you do come in for a visit, you will notice that your nurse plays a greater role than you might be used to. Your nurse will spend more time listening to your concerns, help you communicate those concerns to your doctor, and then make sure that you understand the care plan and that all of your questions are answered.

Your Responsibilities

In the Patient Centered Medical Home, you share responsibility for your health. We encourage you to take an active role in your care by asking questions, participating in the decisions that affect you and your family’s health, and proactively communicating with your team when you receive care outside of your Medical Home. To that end, we will go the extra mile to ensure that when you need care, you get care from your own health care team - the doctor, nurses and support team who know you and your family well.

How to Prepare for an Encounter

Make a list of questions you would like to ask your healthcare team. Put the questions that are most important to you at the top of the list.

If you wish, ask a family member or trusted friend to come to your appointment with you.

Make a list of healthcare providers you visited outside of our Medical Home Clinic. Write down their names, addresses, phone numbers, and the reasons you visited them. This will help your healthcare team better coordinate all of your care.

Maintain a list of your current medications. Be sure to include prescription, over-the-counter, natural, and herbal medicines and vitamins.

If you have insurance in addition to Tricare, bring your insurance card or other insurance information with you to your appointment.


Appointment Availability

In your Patient Centered Medical Home, we make every effort to ensure you get an appointment when you want. We strive to provide same day access with your health care team so that you won’t have to rely on an urgent care center or the emergency room for your primary care.

Studies show that when you receive care from the same health care team overtime, you reduce hospitalizations and unnecessary lab tests, imaging studies, and prescriptions.
