Why do I need a primary care doctor (PCP)?

They also make referrals to specialists and other providers, help you get pre-approvals if needed, and schedule any lab work or medical tests you need.

What’s a Value Choice Provider?

As a Florida Blue member, you may save time and money when you see a primary care doctor at any Sanitas Medical Center or Diagnostic Clinic Medical Group location. These Value Choice Providers offer you quality care—under one roof—for many conditions. And with more convenient hours, it’s easier to find time to go to the doctor.

You'll save time with on-site diagnostic tests at many locations, and you can request a Spanish-speaking doctor. They offer urgent care and same-day appointments on your schedule—most locations are open late and on weekends. And best of all, if you choose a doctor at Sanitas or Diagnostic Clinic Medical Group as your primary care doctor, you could have unlimited appointments for $0 copay per visit. (This doesn't apply if you have a Health Savings Account plan.)

What is a Value-Based Provider and why should I choose one?

Value-based doctors put a special focus on helping you stay well. If you have a health condition, you can count on your doctor to make it simpler to get care and stay on a healthy track. This helps you save time, spend less and live your healthiest. When you’re sick, you’ll have a team to manage and guide your care.

What’s the difference between a Value Choice Provider and a Value-Based Provider?

A value-based provider is a doctor in your network who puts a special focus on helping you stay well. They will work with you to create an ongoing wellness plan to guide your health care journey. And when you’re sick, they’ll work with a team to manage and guide your care. This can mean fewer unnecessary tests and services, lower costs and better care. Value-based providers offer same-day appointments, after-hours care and electronic communications.

Value Choice Providers is the name for a specific group of value-based providers. These doctors at Sanitas and Diagnostic Clinic Medical Group offer the same quality care that value-based providers do—with extra savings like unlimited $0 primary care doctor appointments where you can get X-rays, allergy testing and most allergy shots during that visit.
