JAMESTOWN - Effective March 15, Five Star Urgent Care in Jamestown joined Univera Healthcare's network of health care providers for Commercial and MedicareAdvantage members.
Five Star Urgent Care is located at 15 S. Main St., Jamestown and is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
"Univera Healthcare commercial and MedicareAdvantage members should make every effort to seek care from, or coordinate their care through, their primary care physicians," said Dr. Richard Vienne, Univera Healthcare vice president and chief medical officer. "After hours, when urgent care outside of an emergency room setting is needed, our commercial and MedicareAdvantage members can visit any urgent care center that's in our network."
As of March 15, that network includes Five Star Urgent Care in Jamestown.
Note: It is always a member's responsibility to ask whether or not a health care provider or facility is part of Univera Healthcare's network -prior- to services being rendered. Non-participating providers may neglect to offer this information, leaving members responsible for higher out-of-pocket costs.
Univera Healthcare members with questions should call the Customer Service telephone number on the back of their member ID card.
Univera Healthcare is a nonprofit health plan that is part of a family of companies financing and delivering health services for more than 1.8 million upstate New Yorkers.
Based in Buffalo, the health plan serves more than 145,000 members across the eight counties that comprise Western New York.
