How to find a provider that is right for you
Finding a provider that is right for you can take some time. Think about issues in your life that are the most important. Ask yourself questions like, “Do you want a provider with whom you can share decisions about your care? Do you need a provider to make decisions for you? Do you need specific care for a sickness or disease? Do you want a provider who believes in holistic medicine, such as acupuncture or nutritional supplements?”
If you or a dependent struggles with a certain sickness or disease, you should be thinking about if a provider will help.
Get a list of in-network providers: Call your insurance company or look at their plan materials for a list of doctors in their network. You’ll usually pay less to see a doctor in your network than a doctor who’s out-of-network.
Do your research: Ask friends and family if they recommend their doctors. You may even be able to read online reviews for doctors in your area.
Call the office for more information: Call the doctor’s office and ask them any questions you have to help you decide. Make sure they accept new patients and your health coverage.
Make an appointment, and give them a try: When you call to make your appointment, have your insurance card on hand. It might take more than one visit to figure out if a doctor is the right one for you.
