Tips for selecting a primary care provider
Your primary care physician is a medical provider that will likely oversee the health and wellness of you and your family for the long-term. A PCP tends to common medical problems, but should also look out for your overall health – recommending screenings, making referrals, encouraging healthy habits and much more. It’s important that you develop a trusting, ongoing relationship with a health care provider that can meet your general medical needs and who can steer you to specialists or other medical resources when needed.
If you don’t currently have a designated PCP, here are a few suggestions to find the right fit. A little bit of homework goes a long way for this important professional relationship.
- Search your health plan network. Look up providers in your health plan’s network. Because you will likely see your PCP often, using a doctor within your plan’s network will save you money. Plus, it may be easier to locate somebody close by.
- Consider medical background. Note that some providers are board-certified in a field of medicine. This means that they have completed training in a specialty and passed an exam that assesses their knowledge and skill in a particular area, such as diabetes or pediatrics.
- Get referrals. Talk to friends, neighbors and relatives and see if they can refer you to a quality doctor. Nothing is more reliable than the experiences of people similar to you.
