Locating options to treat less serious ailments

According to a press release, “WellPoint’s affiliated health plans have launched an emergency room program and education campaign incorporating Google Maps to make it easier to find and use retail health clinics and urgent care centers for non-emergency conditions when regular physicians are not available.”

Dr. Manish Oza, a WellPoint medical director, says, “It’s important people know that they have options to treat less serious ailments other than an ER, such as retail health clinics and urgent care centers that provide quality care and cost them significantly less.”
