Primary Care Provider

Your health care provider is called your Primary Care Provider (PCP). The PCP will take care of you and if applicable, your spouse’s basic health care needs.

  • You and your spouse can use the same PCP, or each of you can have a different PCP.
  • You may want to choose a PCP close to your home or place of work.
  • Doctors, physician assistants, or nurse practitioners who provide primary care services, can all be PCPs.

If you see a provider who is not your PCP or does not have a referral from your PCP, YOU will have to pay for the visit and you cannot file for payment from Insure Oklahoma. 

If you have questions about your choice of PCPs or if you would like to change your PCP, call the Insure Oklahoma helpline at 1-888-365-3742.

To find a PCP, you can look in the Insure Oklahoma Provider Directory or you can call the Insure Oklahoma Helpline at 1-888-365-3742. The Insure Oklahoma helpline can also help: 

  • If you need a provider directory

Sometimes the PCP you choose is not taking new Insure Oklahoma patients. In this case, you will have to select another PCP. You can change your PCP once every 30 days up to four times a year by calling the Insure Oklahoma helpline. Your PCP change request may not go into effect right away. Ask the Insure Oklahoma helpline when you can visit your new PCP.
