UCSF Primary Care Options & Specialty Care Services

Switching to a UCSF Primary Care provider is convenient and easy for UCSF employees and their dependents. (If you are enrolled in Health Net Blue & Gold, one of the employee Anthem plans, resident/fellow Anthem plans or postdoctoral scholar Health Net plans, you can receive your medical care at UCSF Health or through the UCSF Health affiliate network.)

  • Provide your first and last name (or the first and last name of the person requesting the appointment)
  • Provide a phone number and good times to reach you (or your dependent) during normal business hours
  • Provide your insurance information

You will receive a response from one of the new patient navigators within 2-5 business days. If you do not have email, or prefer to call, you may call 1-844-PCP-UCSF.
