Ford Employees Find Care

There's never a convenient time to get sick. But when it happens, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan has a range of options for Ford employees.

Where to start: Your primary care doctor

A primary care doctor is sometimes called a primary care physician, PCP or family doctor. They know your health history so they should be your first call when you’re not feeling well. It’s important to have a regular doctor, so you can see them when you’re sick or need preventive care like annual physicals and vaccinations.

Primary care doctor

See a primary care doctor for short-term, long-term or preventive care.

How it works

You make an appointment to see your doctor. Many offices offer same-day appointments and others keep their phones open after hours.

When to use it

If you or a loved one isn't feeling well, you're not pressed for time and it isn't an emergency. When it comes to your health, no one knows you like your primary doctor. Over time, they get to know what illnesses you're prone to and what medications seem to help. And if you need it, they can also recommend follow-up care so you can count on them through your entire care journey.

Find a primary care doctor

Log in to your Blue Cross online account. Then, look for Doctor's Office and choose Find a PCP to start your search.

When to use it

Emergency room

Although we hope it never happens, sometimes you need emergency care. The ER at your local hospital will be ready if you find yourself in this situation. Because it was designed for life-threatening conditions, you'll get expert care within moments of your arrival. Keep in mind, visiting for mild to moderate symptoms – like a headache or stomachache – could cost you unnecessary time and money.

How to get this care

In an emergency, call 911 or go to an ER near you.

How it works

You drive up and are assisted inside. Or, an ambulance can transport you there.

When to use it

If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms that could indicate a life-threatening condition – such as chest pain, blurred vision, signs of poisoning or an unconscious state.
