Tips For Choosing a doctor or health care service.

Posted on January 7, 2011


We all want the best quality health care possible, but it’s hard to know the best options on where to receive that care.

The Mayor’s Health Line, in Boston, can help you navigate the complex health care environment and find the best possible option for your care. If you want to go about it yourself, here are some things to consider:

  • What services does your insurance cover?
  • Where can you use your health insurance?
  • Is the healthcare provider or service is accredited?
  • Is the location of services easily is available and accessible to you?
  • Do you want a provider that is of a particular gender?
  • Does your provider need to speak a certain language?
