What is a managed care organization (MCO)?

An MCO is a health care company. It is often called a "health plan." It is a group of doctors, hospitals and other providers who work together to meet your health care needs.

What is a primary care provider (PCP)?

Your PCP is your family doctor, nurse or other health care provider. Your PCP will work with you to get the health care you need. This includes sending you to a specialist or hospital if you need those services.

You can choose the same or different PCPs for your family members.
