Find a primary care provider

Research shows that people with a primary care provider (PCP) enjoy better health outcomes. People who have a relationship with a primary care provider as their usual source of care are more likely to receive high-value care, have better access to care, and report a higher satisfaction with their health care.

A PCP who you see regularly is likely to find problems sooner and can be a trusted resource who follows you over time. Seeing your PCP regularly can also help save money and avoid more costly care, such as an emergency room visit.

Now is the time to schedule your annual wellness visit and to find a PCP you like, if you haven’t already. Read more about how to find a PCP on the Balanced You blog.
