When to Change from a Pediatrician to an Adult PCP

If you recently turned 19, you may need or want to transition your care from a pediatrician to a primary care provider (PCP) for adults (such as a general practitioner).

February 11, 2020  

You may need to choose a PCP for adults for the following reasons:

  • You have reached the age of 19
  • You are pregnant and want to have an adult PCP or obstetric gynecologist provide your care
  • Your pediatrician suggests you transition to a PCP for adults

We're here to help you make that transition. To change your pediatrician to an adult PCP, use our online Find a Doctor, Hospital or Pharmacy tool. Once you've selected a new PCP, you can log in to Tufts Health Member Connect to make the change in our system. Or you can call member services at 888-257-1985 (TTY: 711), Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., for help finding a new PCP and/or changing your PCP.
