At your next doctor office visit

Take advantage of the many free or low-cost benefits you have...with Samaritan Advantage!

At your next doctor office visit:

  • Ask about the screenings, tests and vaccines that Samaritan Advantage covers

  • Use this reminder checklist to make sure that you have discussed your questions with your doctor

Have you taken advantage of the many screenings, tests and vaccines covered under your plan at little or no cost to you? Some of these important services include breast and colorectal cancer screenings, annual flu vaccines and osteoporosis testing. To learn more about these screenings, tests and vaccines, we encourage you to talk with your doctor about them at your next appointment.

We know that it is often difficult to remember your questions once you get in the exam room. To help you, we have created a reminder checklist that you can complete and take to your next office visit as a conversation starter.

In addition to Samaritan Advantage’s benefits for preventive services, we want to make sure that you know you can talk to you doctor about other important aspects of your physical and mental health. It is always appropriate to discuss exercise and physical activity, any chronic conditions you may have and emotional problems such as anxiousness, depression or irritability with your doctor. Even if your doctor does not bring these topics up, you can always ask your doctor about them.
