Are you looking for background information on a possible new physician?
Would you like to compare health insurance plans?
Are you searching for information about the Medicare system?
Would a checklist for comparing nursing homes be helpful?
Navigating the Health Care System, a Subject Guide for health consumers, includes information about these topics, and related topics, to help you in understanding the health care system.
Since this resource guide is a publication of Healthnet: Connecticut Consumer Information Network, a program of the Lyman Maynard Stowe Library, UConn Health, it includes Connecticut as well as national resources when they are available.
Books listed may be available at your public library. If your library does not own a book you would like to read, the library may be able to borrow a copy for your use through the Interlibrary Loan System. In addition, Connecticut residents may borrow books directly from other public libraries within the state with their own town library card.
Although advertisements may appear on some Internet websites in the Guide, the University of Connecticut Health Center Library makes no recommendations for these products or services nor endorses them.
