What is Primary Care?
Primary care is the foundation of our health care system and essential to better health outcomes, lower costs, and healthier families and communities.
Primary care is:

- Comprehensive, addressing all that contributes to a person’s health and well-being
- Care that follows a person from childhood through old age
- Coordination of care across settings and providers
