#TimeForCare

Over the past few months, you may have put off important doctor visits or other medical care. If so, you’re not alone. According to a recent study, 58% of Americans say they’ve had to cancel or delay a health appointment due to fears of COVID-19.1

Your care needs to continue, especially if you’re facing a chronic condition or an emotional issue, or if you are pregnant. Because it’s always important to make time for you — and make #TimeForCare.

Getting the right care for you — even during a pandemic

“We have all seen the devastating impact that COVID-19 has had in communities across the country. And as we’ve watched the case numbers and death toll rise, we’ve seen an unsurprising trend: The virus began to level a disproportionate blow to minority and underserved populations.”

Helping you prepare for your in-office visit

Helping you prepare for your in-office visit

Talk to your doctor about your concerns. Together, you can decide whether an in-person visit makes sense for you. If so, here are some of the questions you can ask:

 

  • What should I expect when I arrive at the office?

  • Do I need to bring my own mask?

  • Are staff and patients required to wear masks?

  • Is your staff being tested for COVID-19?

  • How often are the waiting rooms and offices cleaned?

  • Are there separate waiting areas for symptomatic and asymptomatic patients?

  • What should I do if I have had a cough or fever in recent days, recently traveled, or been in contact with someone who has tested positive?
