Adult healthcare works differently than healthcare for kids. For example, adult healthcare will require you to see different doctors at different offices. As an adult, you will need to learn to make and keep track of your appointments. It is important to ask your doctors questions about your health, medications, tests and lab results. Additionally, adult healthcare expects you to know your medications, how to fill your prescriptions and understand what your insurance covers.
The Adult Transition Clinic will guide you on how to connect to adult doctors for primary and specialty care, and stay in control of your own healthcare journey.
