  The first and most important step you take as a Santa Barbara Select IPA member is to select a primary care physician (PCP) to manage your health care. Your PCP will become your primary caregiver, as well as your medical advisor, coordinator of specialty care, and a trusted partner in lifelong health and wellness. Each of your covered family members may select a different PCP based on personal preference and the services most appropriate to their needs. For example, adults will likely prefer a Family Practitioner or an Internist. A Family Practice physician may also be appropriate for teens and children. You may also choose a pediatrician for teens, children and infants. For assistance with the selection of PCPs, feel free to contact our Member Services staff. They can help identify male or female physicians and languages spoken by the doctor or his staff.

  Members are encouraged to communicate openly with their PCPs and to build a relationship of trust. In addition, you always have the option of changing your PCP selection should your needs or preferences change. Some PCPs work in a solo practice while others work with a partner. If you need to be seen soon and your PCP is not available, you will generally be offered the option of an appointment with his/her partner in the same office.

  Female patients also have the freedom to see either their PCP for well woman exams and most gynecological care, or to self-refer for obstetrician/ gynecologist services to any of our many panel OB/GYNs.
