If you think you have an emergency medical condition, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.
An emergency medical condition is a medical or psychiatric condition that manifests itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that you could reasonably expect the absence of immediate medical attention to result in serious jeopardy to your health, serious impairment to your bodily functions, or serious dysfunction of any bodily organ or part. An Emergency Medical Condition is also "active labor," which means a labor when there is inadequate time for safe transfer to a Plan Hospital (or designated hospital) before delivery or if a transfer poses a threat to the health of the member or unborn child.
