Choose a Primary Care Provider & Have Annual Well-Visits

Your Primary Care Provider (PCP) is your main source of healthcare. Your PCP is usually your first call when you feel unwell. Your PCP will also see you for your annual well-visit (also known as a checkup or physical). If you need to see a specialist, your PCP will help coordinate your care, letting you know what kind of specialist you need and why. Your PCP will also give you a referral (if the specialist needs one).

All healthcare you receive through the HUSKY Health program must be from providers who participate in HUSKY Health.

Choose a Primary Care Provider

Your PCP is your personal doctor and the main source of your healthcare. Having a PCP is important. They can identify health concerns early and start treatment quickly to help prevent further health issues. They can also help coordinate your care with specialists.

Your PCP should explain things to you in a way that is easy to understand. This will help you manage any health concerns you have. Understanding treatments and medications prescribed for you is important. Your PCP will also explain why you are taking your medications and what you can expect from them, and give you clear directions on how to take them.

Some PCPs are part of a person-centered medical home (PCMH). To learn more about what a PCMH is, please click here.
