Moving Tips: Speak with doctors when moving

It is important to speak to your doctors before you move.

It is important to speak to your doctors before you move.

If you are moving to a new area, it may be difficult to leave your doctors, especially if you have had a good relationship with them. However, you need to figure out your plans for changing doctors in advance so you will be prepared once your moving company delivers your belongings to the new home. Being prepared for all doctor-related changes will be smart, especially if you or a family member falls ill soon after the move.

Your family may have a wide range of doctors including primary care physicians, dentists, orthodonists and OB-GYNs. You will need to contact each one and request all medical records so that they will be able to be given to the next group of doctors in your new area. This is the most important step, and it needs to be done before your leave.

While it isn't guaranteed, there is a possibility that your doctors know other doctors in your new area that they could recommend. If these are ones who will be able to work with your insurance policy, it may be a good plan to look to see if these options will be a solid fit for you and your family members.

If your current doctors don't have any suggestions, friends in your new area may be able to suggest some of their doctors or even ones that they have used in the past. If this is the case, you could be well on your way to a successful move.

If all else fails, look up the doctors before your move to your new home, as this will help you familiarize yourself with the various options at your disposal. Setting up interviews may put you at ease when looking for new options.
