If you’re late for a doctor appointment (or if you’re dealing with an emergency), you don’t want to be searching all over the house for health information, insurance details, and lists of prescriptions. With a little work ahead of time, you can have all that information at your fingertips, ready to grab on your way out the door.
The Health Info Kit is essentially a convenient, organized, digital “container” for the medical information you might need before, during, or after a doctor visit. Click the title below to download it, fill in your information (your own or your parents’), and then store it in a binder or folder that you can grab on your way to the doctor.
- Health Info Kit is a Word document you can type your information into and then print for your records. The Health Info Kit has forms for Emergency Contact Information, Current Medications, Doctor and Pharmacy Contact Information, Health History, and more.
