Your primary source for healthcare

As your medical home, your PCP will:

  • Be your primary source for healthcare
  • Get prior authorization (when required) from us for services you may need
  • Help manage any health condition(s) you have
  • Help you be as healthy as possible
  • Refer you to a specialist if needed

Having a medical home is important because your PCP:

  • Gets to know you and your healthcare needs well
  • Makes sure you understand your healthcare needs and how to get and take medicine (if needed)
  • Works with your other healthcare providers—such as specialists, behavioral health providers, and hospitals—to coordinate your care

Picking a medical home

Your PCP can be one of the following types of healthcare providers:

  • Family doctor
  • Federally qualified health center or rural health center
  • General practitioner
  • Internist
  • Specialist (in some cases)
  • Women’s healthcare provider or OB-GYN
    • Can be a doctor, nurse practitioner, or other provider who specializes in obstetrics, gynecology, or family practice
    • Female members can see a women’s healthcare provider as needed and without a referral

Members who identify as American Indian/Alaska Native may choose to see providers who are designated as Indian healthcare providers. For help finding an Indian healthcare provider, call Customer Care at 800-787-3311 (TTY: 711), Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Central time.

You can pick a PCP from our network of doctors. Use our Find a Doctor service, opens new window to find doctors in our network who can serve as your medical home. Once you pick a PCP, call Customer Care at 800-787-3311 (TTY: 711), Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Central time, and let us know.

Changing your medical home

You may pick a new PCP at any time during the year, for any reason. To change your PCP, call Customer Care at 800-787-3311 (TTY: 711), Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Central time. You must pick a PCP who is in our network.

Your PCP also may leave our plan’s network. We will:

  • Let you know if your PCP leaves our network
  • Help you pick a new PCP
  • Assign you a PCP if you do not pick one

As possible, we will notify you by mail within 45 days of your PCP’s last day in our network.
