Tips for choosing a Primary Care Provider (PCP) and Primary Dental Provider (PDP)

Main Content

To help you choose a PCP and PDP, think about your answers to these questions:

  • Do you want to keep the PCP or PDP you have now or choose a new PCP or PDP?
  • How far are you willing to travel to see your PCP or PDP?
  • Do you need a PCP or PDP who speaks a certain language?

If you want to keep the doctor or PDP you have now, see if your provider is in any of the health plans or dental plans on the Find a provider page. Then choose a plan your doctor or dental provider is in.

If you want to choose a new doctor as your PCP or a new dental provider as your PDP, ask people you trust for names of doctors or dental providers they like. Then find a health or dental plan that provider is in by using the Find a provider page.

To find providers near you or providers who offer services in the language you want, go to the Find a provider page.
