Transfer your medical records
If you already have copies of your medical records, bring them to your first office visit. If not, when you visit your KP primary care physician for the first time, talk to him or her about your health history and goals. Your doctor can determine what medical information may need to be transferred from your previous health care provider. You will then need to contact your previous health care provider and follow their process for obtaining your medical records. Once received, please submit the medical records you obtained from your previous provider directly to your KP primary care provider.Next: Advance Directives >
Life Care Planning and Advanced Directives
Life Care Planning is an organized process of communications to help adults think about and discuss goals for future health care decisions that reflect their values and beliefs, and to express those goals in writing. An advance directive is a legal document that states your wishes for future medical care if you become unable to speak for yourself. Once you have completed an advance directive, we recommend you share it with loved ones and provide it to your doctor for your medical record.
We offer Life Care Planning resources, forms, and Health Education classes, which you can find online. Classes are no cost for members.Next: What kp.org can do for you >
