The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "primary care network."
Remember the old-fashioned family doctor? Today, he or she would likely be called a primary care physician and would work for a managed care health plan, where the emphasis is on controlling costs. A primary care network is a roster of doctors who are available to serve patients enrolled in the plan.
Need to find a new doctor? Nowadays, the place to look is within the primary care network offered by your health insurer.
