Primary Care Providers Play a Key Role in Caring for Our Senior Population

January 13, 2022

As you age, it’s important to have a primary care doctor, not just when you’re ill, but also to make sure you stay healthy by being up to date with preventive screenings, vaccinations, and overall healthcare.

As part of our commitment to care for the central Connecticut senior population, we want to ensure that seniors can find a primary care provider, in a town near them, who can serve as a trusted partner.

We have recently added several outstanding primary care providers who welcome new patients.  

You may have friends or family members who need a primary care provider and have not been find one or get an appointment. Or, you may know someone who has a provider who recently retired or is looking to make a change.

Please feel free to direct them to where they can see a list of providers welcoming new patients or request an appointment. Or, suggest they call (860) 721-5743 and our team can set up a visit with an available PCP.

And, don’t forget that all Medicare patients of Starling Physicians who are enrolled in one of the contracted Medicare Advantage plans and have designated Starling Physicians as their primary care physician are automatically enrolled and receive the benefits of our Starling Senior Care Advantage program.  This is a unique partnership with the Medicare Advantage plans from  Aetna, Anthem, Care Partners, ConnectiCare, Humana, United Healthcare, and Wellcare. Patients who enroll in one of these plans and who select a Starling PCP have access to the Starling Senior Care Advantage program, which offers them more time with their PCPs, a strong focus on wellness services, additional resources to support care coordination for those with complex medical needs, and trusted advice for ways to improve their health.

Please feel free to help your Medicare-eligible friends and family who need better access to a primary care provider. In addition, please visit for more details.
