Hi, I’m Dr. Griffin Rodgers, director of the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases at NIH.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services offers a free guide for prioritizing your health and understanding your coverage.

My colleague, Dr. Cara James, director of CMS’ Office of Minority Health, explains more:

DR. JAMES: The Roadmap to Better Care and a Healthier You offers information for finding a provider, preparing for your office visit, definitions of common insurance terms, the importance of screening and prevention, and helpful resources.

DR. RODGERS: You can find the Roadmap at GO.CMS.gov forward slash OMH. For more tips on managing your health, follow us on Twitter @NIDDKgov. This is Dr. Griffin Rodgers.
