Members/Patients

How do you become a Member of BFMC/HPN? BFMC/HPN contracts with many health plans (eg Blue Cross, Health Net, Blue Shield) to administer your medical care. When you choose a health plan that contracts with Bakersfield Family Medical Center / Heritage Physician Network and select one of many providers within our group and network as your Primary Care Provider (PCP), you automatically become the lead Member of your health care team. With this status, you not only are a patient that has access to comprehensive medical, social and other support services, you and your family along with your PCP benefit from a vast network of services.

We know that you are interested in living your life to the fullest. We support and promote wellness through health education, access to services that you may need and, most importantly, quality medical care when you have a health issue.
