- What are the best Web sites for finding a doctor?
How can I determine if other doctors will be on call with my doctor?
Doctors in solo practice cannot be on call 24/7/365 so, typically, they will have an arrangement with other doctors to “cover” for their patients when they are not available. Most doctors practice in large or small groups these days so, of course, they cover for each other.
How will I know if a new doctor takes my insurance?
The best way to find out if a doctor takes your insurance is to check with the doctor’s office staff. Remember, most insurers offer a variety of plan options. You have to be certain the doctor participates in your particular plan. Alternatively, use your health plan print or on-line Provider Directory to be certain your doctor is “in network.”
