Having a primary care provider can keep you healthier as you age. Your PCP will coordinate your care and work directly with other providers in the network to assure you’re receiving the care that’s most appropriate. If you require care from a specialist, your PCPC can serve as your navigator to ensure you receive care from the providers best suited for your medical conditions.
SummaCare generally requires the designation of a PCP. You have the right to designate any primary care provider who participates in our network and who is available to accept you or your family members. Until you make this designation, SummaCare designates one for you. For children, you may designate a pediatrician as the PCP.
If you need help selecting a PCP or have questions about the SCConnect network, call SummaCare Member Services at 330.996.8700 or 800.996.8701 (TTY 711).
