Select a primary care physician
When you enroll in the Trio HMO, Access+ HMO plan or the EPO plan you must select a primary care physician (PCP). To find a PCP, you can search online or Call Shield Concierge at (800) 334-5847 for help finding or changing your doctor.
To search online for a PCP, click on your plan's Find a doctor button below and follow these steps:
  • Select Primary Care Physician
  • Enter the location
  • Click on Doctor Name or Doctor type

You may need your selected PCP’s ID number and medical group/Independent Practice Association (IPA) number when you enroll for the first time. To find this number, search for your doctor using our Find a Doctor tool. Then, click on your doctor’s name and select View details under Primary Care Physician ID.
