When it comes to your health care, the person who can best ensure that you receive the highest quality, affordable care is you. In order to effectively advocate for yourself, you must be able to openly communicate your needs, interests, and rights.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions and take notes!
Whenever you don’t understand something, speak up.
If you are confused about costs, want to find out about alternative treatments, or want more information, you have the right to ask questions and receive clear answers. Be informed; do research online, ask questions, and know what your
options are before making decisions. Find out what the alternatives are. Hold on to records and receipts.
This guide can help you understand how to advocate for yourself when it comes to your health care and medical costs. Empower yourself by being your own advocate.
