A Primary Care Physician (PCP) is the medical professional that provides preventative care through general checkups and provides treatment for routine, minor conditions. PCPs are the individuals sought out for colds, minor rashes, vaccines, etc. A PCP will not take emergency visitations such as a broken arm. In cases where a Primary Care Physician feels uncertain or unable to treat a patient, a referral to a specialist can be made or the patient can be sent to a local hospital.

There are a variety of PCPs; for more information Nemours Kids Health offers the following resource:  What's a Primary Care Physician (PCP)?

Additionally, there may be resources through your health insurance, which can direct you to a PCP who’s covered under your health insurance.

To find a doctor who accepts your insurance please contact your HMO Member services. Your HMO is listed on your insurance card.
