Women’s Principal Health Care Provider

A Women’s Principal Health Care Provider (WPHCP) is an obstetrician/gynecologist
(OB/GYNE) who has been selected to be directly accessible for treating and coordinating
a female Member’s health care needs. Your WPHCP should coordinate care with your
Primary Care Physician. You may access this physician without a referral; however,
a referral is necessary for all services this physician recommends. Please make sure
the WPHCP you have selected is on the enclosed list. Please note that these OB/GYNE
providers do not take the place of your Primary Care Physician.
