I learned early on to keep track of everything medical-related. Doctors’ offices don’t always keep accurate co-payment records, medical reimbursement plans require orgininal documentation, and insurance companies regularly make claim mistakes. With two small children, we have been to NICU, the cardiologist, the nephrologist, the urologist, the physical therapist, the dentist, the ER, a bunch of radiologists, and of course the pediatrician. (My children are very healthy, but just seem to have a lot of “issues.”) I keep track of ALL my family’s medical information in my take-with-me-everywhere planning binder. I actually created my own planning pages to accurately and efficently capture all my healthcare information.
I created for you a designed set of Healthcare Planner Pages that you can download and print for Free. Use them to keep all your healthcare information in one place. (Don’t forget to add blank notes pages to keep track of phone conversations! It took me 5 months of conversations to finally schedule my son’s surgery.)
Keep in mind that you also might want to give a copy of your family’s medical history to a third party you trust, like grandparents, or a caretaker who cares for your children so that in the event of an emergency someone else would be able to give a medical professional your child’s complete and accurate medical history.
I hope these pages are useful to you. Please feel free to give me your feedback about what you would add to these planner pages or other planning pages you would like to see here in the future! Happy organizing to you!
