Check Your Insurance

Unfortunately, your sister’s favorite doctor might not take your insurance. So before you make an appointment, log on to your health insurer’s website to access their list of covered providers. Simply select the type of doctor you’re looking for (a dermatologist or pediatrician) and enter your zip code and the number of miles you’re willing to travel. Once you’ve found a couple of doctors who meet your criteria, call and find out if they’re accepting new patients.
