Seeing a Specialist

Your Primary Care Physician (PCP) gives you most of your care. You should always go to your PCP first. Sometimes your PCP will send you to a specialist. Specialists work on specific parts of the body. For example, some specialists care for the skin (dermatologists). Some care for bones (orthopedists). Others care for the heart (cardiologists).

Your PCP and specialist will work together, so you get the care you need. Your PCP will tell you what to do if you need a specialist. MPC will pay both your PCP and your specialist.

Your Medical Team

A PCP is a short name for a primary care provider. A Primary Care Provider (PCP) is the doctor or nurse practitioner who manages your medical care.

A specialist is a doctor trained to treat a specific medical condition, like the heart, bones, or brain.

Specialty care refers to the health care services given by a specialist. Some special health care needs may require that you see a specialist as part of your primary care (health care services).
