Trips to the doctor usually aren’t fun, but chances are, you’ll need to go at least a few times throughout your life. When you do, you’ll want to see someone who is close to where you live or work, as well as someone who can tend to your unique needs.
Even if you’re not sick, having a primary care physician (PCP) at your disposal for annual well visits, vaccines, and any health concerns is highly advisable. Should you need X-rays, lab work, or inpatient surgery, knowing which facility participates in the CDPHP® network, is nearby to where you live or work, and meets your unique needs (e.g., accommodates other languages) is invaluable and can save you time, hassle, and even money.
To help you quickly and easily find the right doctor and health care facility, CDPHP developed Find-A-Doc, a comprehensive and user-friendly search tool. Gone are the days of clunky, wasteful, paper-based provider directories (although, you can still request one if you so choose). Rather, you can effortlessly search for a doctor from your computer or even your mobile device. What’s more, by using Find-A-Doc instead of a paper directory, you’re guaranteed to receive the most accurate and current results.
How to Use Find-A-Doc This handy tool was designed with every CDPHP member in mind, from tech wizzes to neophytes and college kids to seniors, and is easy to use. It’s also easy to find once you’re on the CDPHP website. Just look for the green box on the right-hand side of your screen. For demonstration purposes, let’s walk through the steps for finding a PCP. Once you’re on the main Find-A-Doc page:
Tip: The more information you provide, the more precise and targeted your results will be. This is useful for when you don’t have the time, or motivation, to scan through 300-plus listings.
Finding a Pharmacy The steps for searching for a hospital, laboratory, urgent care center, and X-ray/radiology facility are relatively the same as the provider search. Locating a pharmacy, on the other hand, is a bit different:
That’s it! Now you’re well on your way to establishing a health care team that meets your unique needs and is convenient to where you live or work.
As a physician-founded and governed plan, CDPHP places a high priority on cultivating a comprehensive, reputable network of doctors and health care providers so that our members can access the best care possible. Odds are that several of these providers are near you. Find-A-Doc can help you locate the right one.
