UPMC for You covers doctor visits, with no copayments. (Some members may have a small copayment for chiropractors and podiatrists.)
Members choose a primary care practitioner (PCP). A PCP is a personal doctor or Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner (CRNP). He or she provides or arranges all of our members' health care needs.
If a member needs to see a specialist, our doctors help take care of the details. There is no paperwork to worry about.
Services that do not require a referral:
- Well-woman visit
- Pregnancy/birth services
- Family planning
- Vision exams
- Substance abuse treatment
- Dental care
- Behavioral health
PCP can be a family and general practice doctor, a pediatrician, an internal medicine doctor, or a CRNP. Family and general practice doctors treat all family members. Most pediatricians treat children, and most internal medicine doctors treat adults. A CRNP is a registered nurse with advanced training in a specialty area, certified by the boards in that specialty area. A CRNP may diagnose a condition or prescribe medicine under the direction of a doctor.
The Find A Doctor search tool can help our members find and select a doctor that is conveniently located.
