Yes, it’s always a good idea to choose a primary care doctor to coordinate your care and help you when you need to see a specialist. At EmblemHealth, we will select a primary care doctor for you if one is not chosen.
EmblemHealth recommends that you schedule your first primary care doctor visit within the first 90 days of being a member. This way, your doctor can get to know you and your medical history and can recommend preventive care and screenings. Also, once you are a patient, it will be easier for you to schedule a sick visit if you need one.
