Coordinated with other health care providers, including behavioral health, as needed, so you can get the help you need each step of the way.
Updated to meet your changing health care needs.
Clear, so you can understand how to follow the plan and manage your health care.

Tips for working with your medical team:The following steps can help ensure that you team provides you with the best care possible:
Write down the names of your team members.
Get ready for your appointments by writing a list of questions ahead of time. Bring the list with you to your appointments.
During your appointments, ask your most important questions first and keep track of the answers.
Discuss with your team what health issues you would like to work on first. Before you leave the office, be sure you know the things you need to work on before your next appointment.
Use your own words to repeat back to the medical providers the things you've discussed with them. This way, the provider will know the information is clear to you.
Ask your team how to reach them when the clinic is not open.
