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 had a cough or fever in recent days, recently traveled, or been in contact with someone who tested positive?

Many local doctors also offer telemedicine visits or you can use one of the virtual options provided as part of your plan, including our primary virtual care solution, delivered by 98point6®
