Your CHA primary care team is your home for health care. Your primary care doctor leads your team. You can see your team members for sick visits and routine checkups. They will set up your specialty and mental health visits. They can also suggest new wellness options like CHA yoga or mindfulness. Schedule a visit with your primary care team right away, even if you feel healthy. Checkups are covered in full.
CHA primary care locations are certified as primary care homes by the National Committee for Quality Assurance and the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission.
Your care team values differences of all kinds. All CHA care centers have interpreters in more than 60 languages. They are available 24/7 to help people in person, by phone and by video.
