Primary Care Physician (PCP)

PW_M008964
With the Anthem HealthKeepers plan, you have one coordinating physician who knows you and your health history who will either treat you or help get you to the right specialist. This one doctor - your Primary Care Physician - is there for you, and would be the first one you call when you need care.  
Pick the doctor you want - any one of the doctors specializing in family practice, general practice or internal medicine. For the young Anthem HealthKeepers members, pediatricians can be the care coordinators.  
 
Are referrals always required?  
With an Anthem HealthKeepers Point-of-Service (POS) plan, your PCP coordinates your care and refers you to specialists, when needed, even when you go out of the plan for care. However, we offer an Open Access option with our POS plans, which gives you the choice of having a PCP coordinate your care, or you can coordinate it yourself. With the Open Access option, referrals are not required.
