The Basics

When you play an active role in your health care, you can improve the quality of the care that you and your family get. Start by speaking up and asking questions at the doctor's office.

Health care is a team effort, and you are the most important member of the team. Your team also includes doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and insurance providers. 

To take charge of your health care:

  • Keep track of important health information.
  • Know your family's health history.
  • See a doctor regularly for checkups.
  • Be prepared for medical appointments.
  • Ask your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist questions.
  • Follow up after your appointment
