Are you a traditional Medicare recipient? If so, we want to share some information about selecting your PCP through Voluntary alignment. To ensure that we get up-to-date information from your insurance on screening needs, cost of medications, and payment information, naming a PCP on your plan will help.
Voluntary Alignment is a process through Medicare.gov that allows you to select your primary clinician, the healthcare provider whom you believe to be responsible for coordinating your overall care. Selecting a primary clinician does not affect your benefits or limit your ability to receive care from any health care provider. Your selection will also have no effect on your Medicare Part A or Part B billing and payment policies. However, it will provide the clinician you select with additional information to allow for better coordination of your overall care.
To select your primary care provider in the CMS system, you can follow the instructions below:
