Staying healthy increases the chances you’ll be there for your family and friends for many years to come. Use your health coverage when you are sick and when you are well, to help you live a long, healthy life. While coverage is important, there’s no substitute for living a healthy lifestyle.

Here’s what you can do to put your health and well-being first:

  • Make time for physical activity, healthy eating, relaxation, and sleep.
  • Get the preventive services that are right for you.
  • Take an active role in your health.
  • Learn more about what you can do to stay healthy and share what you learn with your family and friends.

What is a provider?

We use the term “provider” throughout this guide to mean a health care professional. This may be a doctor, a nurse practitioner, behavioral health professional, or another health care professional you see.

Your Primary Care Provider will be the provider you see the most, and they will get to know you and help you keep track of your health over time.
