Primary Care

Need to get connected to primary care resources?

A primary Care Provider (PCP) is a health care provider that may be a doctor or a nurse practitioner. This person is your main provider (your Medical Home) for your health care. If you need to see a specialist, your PCP will help you know who to see and how to see them. Your PCP will be available to answer questions you may have, and work with you to manage your health care. If you have further questions about primary care providers in Whatcom County, feel free to visit our Contact page to get in touch with a team member who can help you further.

Call your insurance company first and request that they provide you with a list of local PCP’s in your area who accept your insurance. Next, call the clinic or practice you are interested in and ask if they are still accepting your health insurance and if they are accepting new patients. Note: There may be a waiting period before you can be seen as a new patient at a doctor’s office.
