Choosing a Personal Physician
One of the most important things to do as a new member is to select a personal physician. Depending on your health plan and where you live, you can choose a Group Health doctor who practices at one of our 25 medical facilities or a contracted provider.
Why Choose a Group Health Doctor?
Choosing a Group Health doctor gives you the full benefit of our nationally recognized model of coordinated, patient-centered care.
A strong relationship with your personal physician (also known as your primary care provider) is at the heart of Group Health's model of care. Your doctor knows you and your medical history, and works with you to take charge of your health care, whether you're focused on preventive care, experiencing a temporary illness or injury, or managing a chronic illness such as diabetes or asthma. He or she can help you decide what treatment options are best for you and can help coordinate your medical care.
