Legislative fly-ins help to put faces and stories on the important issues and challenges that affect Americans with arthritis and their families.
The Arthritis Foundation is conducting a Health Care Reform fly-in with arthritis advocates who have experienced challenges with the current health care system, such as:
- accessing health care insurance (unable to purchase due to high cost or denied coverage);
- difficulty paying for medical care (insurance premiums, copays, medications);
- having significant medical debt.
Arthritis advocates are visiting their members of Congress to talk with them about their personal struggles with the health care system and to discuss the Arthritis Foundation position on Health Care Reform.
