PPO members for all Covered CA plans and maybe all? plans will now have a central point of contact PCP – Primary Care Physician, in the health system for receiving long-term, comprehensive, coordinated care for most health needs. PPO members are able to switch PCPs at any time. There is no action for members to take. Blue Shield will provide additional details on this new feature in the coming weeks.
Members of non-grandfathered PPO plans will continue to have the freedom to choose specialists and other providers – without referrals inside or outside the network – as they do now.

Unfortunately Dr. Goladschlager doesn’t show on the list.
So, I googled Dr. Goldschlager – he’s with Sutter Health and the name was misspelled. GIGO – Garbage in Garbage out
