Shopping for a Doctor the Smart Way

In the market for a GP? Take a look at this blog entry, written by a family physician, that suggests what to look for when choosing a new primary care doctor. Board certification, high marks on his or her “report card on quality", and a cordial bedside manner are among the things you should expect from a good physician. The author provides links throughout the article to help you with your research. Of course, friends and family – especially those in the medical professional – can also be a great source of information.

If you’re a MedBen client, keep in mind that you save on out-of-pocket costs by selecting a doctor in the MedBen provider network. The MedBen.com website offers links to our participating provider networks, including direct links to provider searches. If you have questions about a specific physician, the network’s customer service department should have the information you need. MedBen’s own customer service team can often be of help as well – you can contact a representative at (800) 686-8425 or medben@medben.com.
