Tips for choosing a primary care provider (PCP)

Main Content

If you want to keep the PCP you have now: 

  • Choose a health plan that your PCP works with.
  • Then choose the PCP you have now.

If you want to choose a different PCP, here are some things to think about:

  • Is there a doctor you already like?
  • How far are you willing to travel to see a doctor?
  • Do you need a PCP who speaks a certain language?

To find a PCP, go to Find a provider:

  • To find a PCP you know by name, search by name.
  • To find a PCP who can help you with your special health needs, or to find a specialist such as a pediatrician, search by PCP type.
  • To find a PCP near you, search by county, city or ZIP Code.
  • To find a PCP who speaks a certain language, search by language spoken.
