referral -  If you have an HMO plan, your primary care physician (PCP) will need to write you a referral before you see other network providers, such as a dermatologist or a cardiologist.
retail clinic -  A retail clinic is a space within a pharmacy or other retail store that is staffed by nurse practitioners. You can use these clinics when your doctor is not available and your injury or illness is minor, such as a sore throat, earache, or skin rash. Care at a retail clinic will cost you less than the same care in a hospital emergency room.
