Choice of Providers
Members must select a contracting Physician Group where the member wants to receive medical care. That Physician Group will provide or authorize all medical care. Family members may select different contracting Physician Groups. However, each person must select a contracting Physician Group close enough to his or her residence to allow reasonable access to medical care. In addition to selecting a contracting Physician Group, each member must choose a Primary Care Physician from the Physician Group. The Primary Care Physician provides and coordinates medical care. Providers are neither employed nor exclusively contracted by the HMO.
