It depends on your plan (here's more information about the plan types). Most HMO or POS plans require a primary care physician (PCP), while PPO or EPS plans typically do not. A PCP is someone you go to first before you see a specialist.

If you are not sure who you want your PCP to be, you can let the insurance company assign one for you when you apply and change it later.
