Find a provider
- Ask your plan if you must use an approved list of doctors. If you do, get a list of approved medical providers or go to your plan's website and look for a provider directory (some plans call it "find a doctor" or "find a provider").
- If you decide to go to a doctor who doesn't participate in your health plan, ask your plan for an estimate of how much more you'll have to pay if you go to an out-of-network provider.
- Also, ask your plan if you need a referral to see a specialist.
