You should only go to the Emergency Room if a true emergency. The definition of Emergency Medical Condition is a recent and severe medical condition, including, but not limited to, severe pain, which would lead a prudent layperson; possessing an average knowledge of medicine and health, to believe that his or her condition, sickness, or injury, is of such a nature that failure to get immediate medical care should result in:

  • Placing the person's health in serious jeopardy; or
  • Serious impairment to bodily function; or
  • Serious dysfunction of a body part or organ; or
  • In the case of a pregnant woman, serious jeopardy to the health of the fetus.

It does include an accident or serious illness such as a heart attack, stroke, poisoning, loss of consciousness or respiration; and convulsions. It does not include elective care, routine care, care for non-emergency illness, or care required as a result of circumstances which would have been foreseen prior to the covered person's departure from the University/College area.
