Term Details - Primary Care Provider (PCP)

Primary Care Provider. Most healthcare plans consider family physicians, general practitioners, pediatricians, and general internists to be primary care providers. Primary care is distinguished from “specialty” care, which is often focused on a specific health condition or body organ, such as oncologists, who deal with cancer, or cardiologists, who specialize in hearts.
