Choose or change your primary doctor

Use this form to update your primary care physician, or PCP.


After submitting this form, the change will be effective on the first day of the following month. You should receive a new Sharp Health Plan member ID card with your new doctor’s information 5 to 7 business days before the effective date.

Switching plan medical groups

If you’re choosing a primary care physician (PCP) in a different plan medical group — for example, if you’re switching from a doctor at Sharp Rees-Stealy to a doctor at Sharp Community Medical Group — your current referrals or prior authorizations for specialists, special supplies or equipment will be voided. You must ask your new primary care physician for new referrals or prior authorizations.
