Plan ahead for your doctor's visit

Here are a few things to keep in mind that will help make your visit go as quickly and smoothly as possible:
  • Check to make sure you have your current plan ID card with you before leaving for your appointment
  • Ask whether you can pay your copayment when you arrive for your appointment.  Your office visit copayment amount is located on the front of your ID card.  Using some of your waiting room time for the business part of your visit lets you move on to the rest of your day as soon as your are finished seeing the doctor.
  • Keep your medical records current.  If your address, phone number, or ID number has changed since your last visit, be sure to tell the doctor's office staff.
  • Take along a list of all prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, and herbal remedies that you are taking to identify any possible drug interactions.  Also take the names of doctors currently treating you and details about any recent hospitalizations.  This will help the doctor know how to treat you and coordinate your care.
  • Log on to www.ibxpress.com and select Symptom Checker under WebMD.  As you use the tool, you will see a link called Preparing for Your Appointment under Topic Contents.  There you will find specific questions to ask your doctor and things your doctor will need to know about your particular condition.
