How can I get referrals for a new doctor?
Most people rely on the recommendations of friends and relatives when trying to find a new doctor. That is a good start but it is still important to check on the doctors training, board certification, hospital appointments and disciplinary history.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
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.”
