3. Make an appointment with your primary care provider
A primary care provider is your main doctor. This doctor is listed on your ID card and in your online account. You’ll want to make your first appointment right away. The sooner you have a checkup, the better your doctor will be able to care for you. Remember, you can change your primary care provider at any time.
If you have Medicare, your primary care provider is picked through your Medicare plan and won’t be on your Wellpoint ID card.
