When should I go to an urgent care facility?

Your 10-year-old twisted his ankle at soccer practice and it’s really starting to swell. But it’s late. Or it’s Saturday. And your doctor’s office is closed. What should you do?

Although it may seem like a trip to the hospital is in order, the emergency room is not always the best answer. You may be in for a long wait while more critical patients are treated and, depending on your health plan, it could cost you more money.
