Choose UC San Diego Health: Expert Care for Exceptional Employees

We know that UC San Diego employees have choices about where to receive health care. We also know you deserve nothing but the best. Your good health begins with convenient primary care.

 That’s why we’ve expanded our network of primary care locations and included virtual options such as video visits. Our growing network now includes more than 650 primary care providers (PCPs) in San Diego, Riverside and Imperial counties.

During Open Enrollment, choose a UC San Diego Health PCP or one with our affiliated practices such as Perlman ClinicOne Medical or San Diego Sports Medicine. No matter where you get your care, you and your family can access our nationally ranked specialty care and the most advanced technology and services.

New this year: You and your family have more options than ever because of our affiliation with Children’s Primary Care Medical Group (CPCMG), which widens your access to pediatrics care.

 

You Can Make the Switch

  • Switch: If your current plan doesn’t cover UC San Diego Health providers or our affiliates, you may switch to one that does during Open Enrollment.
  • Choose: If your current plan gives you access to UC San Diego Health, you may be able to choose one of our primary care physicians (PCPs) at any time. You may need to use a provider code when selecting your PCP — see a list of provider codes codes.
  • Tip: Call us in December 800-926-8273 to schedule your first (or next) appointment!

To learn more about our doctors and locations, or to become a new patient, please call 800-926-8273.

Note: One Medical is a membership-based practice that charges an annual fee. But UC San Diego covers this membership fee for employees. Read our One Medical FAQs for more information »
