Urgent Care Locations

We recommend you use UCSF's Urgent Care center or an in-network facility to receive greater insurance benefits. To locate an Urgent Care provider within 15 miles of San Francisco, please see this Anthem provider list.

You should come to SHCS first if you have an urgent/acute need during business hours (M-F 8-5 and some evenings).

If you visit Urgent Care while SHCS is closed, that visit needs to be authorized by Student Health & Counseling. To get retro-authorization, request that the medical records and physician notes from your visit be sent to Student Health as soon as possible. For more information, visit ER/Urgent Care Claims.
