Getting a Primary Care Doctor

Children's Community Health Plan wants to help keep you and your family healthy. Seeing your primary care provider (PCP) on a regular basis is not only good for your health but important. When you or your family visits their PCP for check-ups, it can prevent visits to the emergency room and save you time.

A primary care provider is your main health care provider and will:

  • Provide care to keep you healthy;
  • Teach you how to stay healthy;
  • Identify and take care of common medical problems;
  • Decide the best place for you to go when you are sick;
  • Make referrals to specialists when needed

Primary care providers include:

  • Family practice – these physicians see patients of all ages, your whole family can see the same doctor, some also care for you if you're pregnant.
  • Internal medicine – these physicians see adults, usually older than 18.
  • General pediatricians – these physicians specialize in the needs of children, usually until they reach 18 years old.
  • Nurse practitioners – these care givers can also be your primary care provider, they offer well visits and care for you when you're sick, just the same as a doctor.
  • Women's Care – Female members may go directly to a network obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) for care, including maternity care without needing to see their primary care provider first.
