Virtual Primary Care makes accessing care easy, so you're able to get care when needed and pursue your best health. You can select a Virtual Primary Care provider (V‑PCP) to manage your care or opt to see the first available provider. When in‑person care is needed, you'll be guided to a care team or the right location to receive care.
See a V-PCP for:
- Diagnosis and management of chronic conditions.
- Simple, everyday care needs.
- Preventive care to aid your long-term health.
- Prescription orders and refills, including birth control.
- Medication management and adjustments.
- Test needs, including lab and radiology, at the site closest to you.
- Referrals to specialists, as needed.
- Easy communication using MyChart to instantly message your V‑PCP and monitor your healthcare journey.

- Prescribing controlled substances.
- Evaluation and management of severe, uncontrolled conditions. Specialists will be engaged.

- Serious and severe conditions, such as stroke symptoms, severe abdominal pain/back pain/headache, uncontrolled vomiting, kidney stones, major cuts, suicidal thoughts, and sudden change in mental state. Emergency Care is recommended.
