New Members

Welcome to Yale Health!

Your care as a Yale Health member begins with your primary care provider (PCP) in Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology or Pediatrics. You are assigned a PCP when you enroll. When your condition requires more specialized care, there’s an extensive network of specialists drawn largely from the faculty at Yale School of Medicine. You can rest easy knowing that we have nurses available 24/7 for medical questions as well as round-the-clock Acute Care. At Yale Health, you and your family will have easy access to the expertise and care that you deserve.

You will receive all of your healthcare at the Yale Health Center unless your PCP refers you to an outside clinician/specialist. Prior authorization is required for all referrals.
