Your Health Care Team

We are committed to your health and wellness, and we have an entire team ready to help.

Your Primary Care Provider (PCP)

Your PCP is your main health provider. The best way for you to stay healthy is to form a good relationship with your PCP.  Women can choose a women’s healthcare provider and a PCP. To make an appointment, call your PCP’s office and tell them you are a CountyCare Member.
