Step 2: Choose Your Doctor


This is an important step in choosing a plan
 
The doctor you choose is your Primary Care Provider (PCP). Your PCP looks out for your health and sees you when you are sick and for regular check-ups. If you need to see a specialist, your PCP will help you get that care. Once enrolled, you can change your PCP by calling your plan. Each family member may be in a different plan and may have a different PCP.
 
Ask yourself the following questions when deciding on a plan and a doctor:
 
  Can the doctor I have now be my PCP?
  (To find out, call the HelpLine at 1-888-367-6554.)
 
  Is there a doctor that is close to my home?
 
  What kind of doctor do I need - a pediatrician, a family doctor?
 
  Can I find a doctor who speaks my language?
 
  Do my family or friends have a PCP that they like?
 
  Can a Federally Qualified Health Clinic be my PCP?
