How to Get Preventive Care

Getting preventive care with SFHP is easy. Just call your primary care provider (PCP) to make an appointment. A PCP is your main doctor, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner. You can find your PCP’s phone number on your SFHP ID card. Or, you can find a PCP near you with the Provider Directory.

Many preventive services can be done during your regular visit, so you don’t need a separate appointment. Ask your PCP what vaccines and tests may be right for you.
