As many students are at college or schools that are not close to home, it is important to know what to do if medical care is needed. If your situation is not an emergency, but it is medically necessary for you to get care quickly,full-time students can visit an out-of-town urgent care center. There are many urgent care centers throughout the United States open seven days a week, and you do not need an appointment. You do not need to get prior approval from Horizon NJ Health to visit an urgent care center for an urgent medical condition. Just show the staff your Horizon NJ Health ID card
