Patient Education Handouts

The Maricopa County Medical Society is committed to helping consumers understand the changing healthcare landscape.

In 2014, our Round-up Magazine will include a patient handout (as a tear out sheet) that can be used by you to help patients understand various issues to aid them in making more informed decisions for them and their families.

Download the pdfs (linked into the month) below, print and make copies. Distribute them in your waiting and exam rooms. Provide copies to your staff- they can hand them out with check-in paperwork.

Do you have suggestions on future handout topics? We'd love to hear them! Contact the Society at or call 602-252-2015.


January - What you should know as a patient in 2014  


February - Confused about the Affordable Care Act, Medicare and Medicaid? We can help!   


March - What is compliance and why does it matter?  


April - Understanding my insurance, what do I owe?
