Get Ready for Your First Appointment
When you talk to one of our Care Advisors, they will let you know how you can prepare for your first appointment. Here are a few things to get you started:
- Start making a list of questions you have. Bring this list with you. You should also bring something to take notes with.
- Ask a friend or family member to come with you. It is helpful to have someone else there to listen.
- Bring your photo ID, insurance card, and prescription card (also called a pharmacy card).
