Note: All providers that participate in Florida Blue’s BlueOptions Network are in the Tier 2 network. A list of Tier 2 providers can be found on the Florida Blue website. When searching in the Florida Blue online provider directory, please use “BlueOptions” to find providers that qualify for Tier 2 coverage under the GatorCare health plan.
Do you have a primary care provider?
Establishing a relationship with a primary care provider and receiving regular checkups is a good way to stay on top of your health and manage any conditions you may have. Getting established with a primary care provider or PCP can provide the following benefits:
- Individualized and comprehensive care
- Chronic disease management
- Routine health check ups
- A place to go for sick visits, which can allow for quicker appointments and less expensive care (versus going to urgent care or the Emergency Room)
- Someone who is familiar with you and your health needs
