24-Hour Nurse Triage Line

There’s never a convenient time to be sick, but University of Michigan Health patients can be confident that their care team is never more than a call – or a click – away.

Even at night and on weekends, University of Michigan Health is available to you and your family through our 24-Hour Nurse Triage Line phone service and our convenient E-Visit program.

For life-threatening emergencies, always call 911.

Daytime Hours and After-Hours Phone Service

For patients under the care of a University of Michigan Health primary care provider who are experiencing new clinical symptoms, our nursing triage phone service is available around the clock. 

To access the nurse triage phone service, call your clinic using the clinic’s standard phone number, and follow the directions to be directed to a live registered nurse.

A U-M Health registered nurse will:

  • Provide a general assessment of your symptoms
  • Determine an appropriate level of care for your symptoms and help you to manage these symptoms at home or while awaiting treatment
  • Discuss additional symptoms to watch for
  • Share all care advice that was discussed on the MyUofMHealth Patient Portal

The nursing service does not provide:

  • Access to speak with your specific provider
  • Prescription renewal assistance
  • Requests for referrals and/or authorizations
  • Management of tests or lab results
  • Help rescheduling or cancelling existing appointments

To cancel or reschedule an appointment, please use the MyUofMHealth Patient Portal or call your clinic during normal business hours. You should also call your clinic to get direct assistance with prescription renewals, requests for referrals and/or authorization and management of tests or lab results.


An E-Visit is a convenient way to receive health care advice and treatment for common medical conditions. With a few clicks to log in to your MyUofMHealth Patient Portal account, you can answer a short survey about your symptoms and receive a written care plan, with prescriptions when appropriate. Learn more or check out what conditions can be treated by an E-Visit.

Start your E-Visit today by logging into your MyUofMHealth Patient Portal account.
