NAL is available at no cost to beneficiaries and helps callers make informed decisions about self-care at home or when to see a health care provider. The NAL registered nurses ask a series of questions about a caller’s specific concerns to advise when and how to seek care for an urgent problem or give instruction on self-care at home. Also, if your child is ill, the Nurse Advice Line routes your call to a nurse who has special pediatric training. For quality and safety purposes, you will be asked to have your child present for the call so the nurse can perform an accurate assessment. If you want a follow-up call, the Nurse Advice Line calls you back to check on your child.
