Choice of doctor
You’ll have a primary medical provider (PMP) who’ll be your main doctor. Your PMP is the person you see for most of your care. This includes checkups, treatments, vaccinations, minor injuries and health issues. Talk to your PMP about any other concerns you may have. Your PMP can help you decide the right options for you.
Your PMP is your main doctor for:
- Preventive care like checkups, cancer screenings and vaccinations
- Treatment if you are sick or injured
- Referrals to specialists for certain conditions
Use the Doctor Lookup Tool to see if your doctor is in our network. If you don’t have a PMP or if your doctor is not in our network, we can help you find a new one close to you. You can change your PMP at any time.
Virtual visits with Doctor Chat
It’s not always easy to visit a doctor in person. Virtual visits (or telehealth) let you talk to a doctor 24/7 using your computer, tablet or smartphone. Telehealth is a good option to treat common conditions that have standard treatments. Here are some examples:
- Cold, flu, and fever
- Cough, aches, and sore throat
- Allergies, skin rash, and irritation
- Urinary tract/bladder infection
- Ear infections
- Sinus infections
- And more
Member Services Advocate
Managing your health care alone can be hard, especially if you’re dealing with many health problems at the same time. If you need extra support to get and stay healthy, we can help. All of our Hoosier Care Connect members have access to their own Member Services Advocate. Your Member Services Advocate can help you:
- Understand the Hoosier Care Connect program
- Find a doctor, dentist or eye doctor
- Explain your benefits and coverage
- Talk to you about special programs that are available to you

Speak to a registered nurse anytime 24/7 to get answers to any health-related question or concern.
Our nurses will:
- Listen to symptoms
- Help with self-care
- Advise you about getting care at a doctor visit or an urgent care center
- Help you know when to go to the emergency room
Well visits with your doctor can help you stay healthy. These visits can catch health problems early, so they can be treated. You should see your PMP every year for a well check, even if you aren’t sick or your symptoms are under control. Preventive services include:
- Checkups for adults and children
- Well-baby care
- Care for women expecting a baby
- Routine shots and tests
- There’s no copay for preventive care
Quitting smoking or vaping
Quitting is hard, but we can help. Did you know that 20 minutes after you quit smoking, your heart rate drops to a normal level? And within 24 hours after quitting the carbon monoxide level in your blood drops to normal.
