The Basics

Speak up and ask questions. When you play an active role in your health care, you can improve the quality of the care you and your family get.

Most people depend on different doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and insurance programs for their health care. It’s a team effort, and you are the most important member of the team.

To take charge of your health care:

  • Keep track of important health information.
  • See a doctor regularly for checkups.
  • Be prepared for medical appointments.
  • Ask your doctor or nurse questions.
