Once you’ve determined your plan’s start date, you need to select a doctor. Keep in mind that some plans require you to select a primary care provider, or PCP. Your PCP is your partner in health care. They keep track of your overall health and can help connect you with specialists in the network. There are other plans that do not require you to select a primary care provider; you’re able to see any doctor that is in the network. Whatever you do, when selecting a doctor, you should always choose a doctor that is in the network.
