For employers with 1–50 employees
Premera Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alaska offer a more value for your employees who designate a primary care provider (PCP). When your employees designate a primary care provider (PCP) their copay becomes lower for a visit to that specific provider. This not only adds value to your employees, but also allows their provider to get to know them and their health history.
Members can choose a PCP from many types of healthcare providers—family or general practice doctor, internist, pediatrician, obstetrician/gynecologist (OB-GYN), physician assistant or nurse practitioner. A PCP provides preventive care, identifies and treats common medical conditions, coordinates care, and makes referrals to medical specialists.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when telling your employees about the value of designating a PCP:
