Choose a Primary Care Provider (PCP)
Your Primary Care Provider is called a PCP. Each member of the UnitedHealthcare Community Plan must pick a PCP.
- If you have a UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plan or Medicare fee-for-service plan and Medicaid coverage, you may pick an In-Network or Out-of-Network PCP.
- If you have other Medicare Advantage plan and Medicaid coverage, you are not required to have a PCP.
- If you have Medicare and Medicaid coverage you may pick an In-Network or Out-of-Network PCP.
- If you choose an Out-of-Network PCP, we will work with your PCP to join our network of doctors. Each member of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan must pick a PCP from our network unless a PCP is not available who will give you the services you need.
If you are in your second or third trimester of pregnancy and you are getting covered prenatal services, you may continue to see your OB/GYN even if he/she is not in our network. Once you have picked a PCP, you should see him or her for all your medical needs. Your PCP will provide or coordinate all of your healthcare. If you need tests or treatments that your PCP cannot provide, your PCP will refer you for this care.
