When you choose your doctor, he or she must be a primary care physician — a doctor who practices one of these areas of medicine:
- adult or internal medicine (specializing in adult care)
- family or general medicine (health care for you and your whole family)
- pediatric medicine (care for patients from birth through age 16 to 18, depending on the facility)
As a new member, you will be able to choose from primary care physicians who are currently accepting new patients.
In some areas, you may have even more options for selecting a primary care physician, such as a nurse practitioner or physician's assistant. Check out your choices in our how to get care center.
