Who can be your PCP?
Your PCP can be whoever you consider your “home-base” for your health. This can be your family practice doctor, a physician’s assistant (PA), nurse practitioner (NP), OB/GYN, or a pediatrician for children. If you don’t already have a PCP.
As a reminder, you have access to any provider in the Bright HealthCare network. You’re not required to choose a PCP, but we do encourage you to pick one to be your healthcare quarterback.
