Care during office hours
Your primary care provider (PCP) is the provider you contact first. Your PCP is on your side, helping you when you are sick and supporting you to stay healthy. Call your PCP when you need care during normal business hours.
To find a PCP in our network, use our provider search tool at tuftshealthplan.com/RIproviders. If you need to see a specialist, your PCP will give you a referral and tell you who to call.
Let us know who your PCP is within 30 days of when your plan starts. We’ll send you a $10 CVS gift card!
With Tufts Health RITogether, you don’t have to pay for checkups. Schedule a visit for a checkup with your PCP right away, even if you feel healthy.
Care after hours
Call your PCP’s office if you need care after hours. You can get help from a health care provider who is on call.
