Specialty Providers

Specialty providers received extensive medical training pertaining to a specific medical field. Your primary care provider (PCP) will refer you to specialists and other medical professionals. They are also associated with the US Family Health Plan network.

How your PCP works with your medical specialty providers

If you have a complex health problem, your PCP may refer you to an USFHP afiliated specialist. The USFHP referral network is extensive and offers many qualified specialty providers.

Your PCP and Specialty provider will work together as a team to meet your healthcare needs. This system ensures:

  • Better communication
  • Good coordination of care among your providers
