You have health insurance. Now What?

  1. A photo ID

  2. Your health insurance card

  3. Your family medical history — the doctor will ask about it

  4. A list of any medications you are taking

  5. Any questions you have for the doctor — it helps to write them down so you don’t forget. After your appointment, follow any instructions that your doctor gives you. It is important to fill any prescriptions prescribed by your doctor. Take your medicine exactly as your doctor told you to; dosage and timing are printed on the bottle. If you get sick or injured during the year, you can make an appointment with your PCP to be checked out. Going to an in-network doctor is much less expensive than going to the emergency room, so unless it is a life-threatening situation, it is better to see your own doctor.
