How to choose a primary care provider (PCP) at MIT Medical

If you are a:

  • MIT employee or covered family member on the MIT Traditional Health Plan or MIT Choice Plan:

    Contact BCBS directly at 800-882-1093. Give the customer service representative your name and insurance membership number, and tell them that you want to select a new PCP. Give them the name of the MIT Medical PCP you have chosen.

  • Student, affiliate, MIT employee on the MIT High Deductible Health Plan: 

    Contact MIT Medical directly at 617-258-9355 (WELL). Tell us your name and the name of the MIT Medical PCP you want to select.

    Students and affiliates who do not have the MIT Student Health Insurance Plan (MIT SHIP) may already have PCPs with their non-MIT insurance plan but they are eligible and strongly encouraged to select a campus care provider at MIT Medical.

    Students and affiliates with MIT SHIP coverage and employees with the MIT High Deductible Health Plan are not required to choose PCPs, but choosing an MIT Medical PCP provides you with a personal clinician who can help coordinate the care you receive at MIT Medical and elsewhere.
