Many people assume they have to take the healthcare instructions they receive and run with them. Compass is here to tell you that you shouldn’t be afraid to ask questions when it comes to your care. Even when you’ve built a long and trusted relationship with your doctor, you can ask about alternative options, second opinions and other clarifying questions to make sure there are no stones left unturned. Let us help make you comfortable exploring options and asking the tough questions about cost and quality when it comes to your health and the health of your family. That’s what we like to call empowered healthcare consumers.
Speak up, we can’t hear you! Trust me, it’s common – a lot of people think that they just have to take the healthcare instructions they’re given and run with them. Look, I know you trust the care you’ve been receiving, and I don’t want to disrupt what feels comfortable. But maybe, it’s time for a fresh start! Don’t be afraid to ask questions when it comes to your care. If your doctor recommends a medication, you can ask if there are lower-cost alternatives. If you get a recommendation for surgery, you can see someone new for a second opinion. Think about it. You wouldn’t buy something as personal and expensive, as a car or a house without asking questions and exploring multiple options, right? So, why don’t we explore other options and ask the tough questions about cost and quality when it comes to our health and the health of our families? What happens if tomorrow you decide to speak up? And your spouse. And then your neighbor. And your coworker. Maybe when you speak up, you encourage someone else to do the same.
