Health Care Issues
√ Denied Specialist Care
√ High Out-of-Pocket Costs
√ Medical Debt
√ Unmet Health Care Needs
√ Delayed Care
I have the complication of having auto immune hepatitis and have gone into liver failure. The insurance company is not willing to allow me to go to Boston to be under the care of a hepatic specialist who can address both the rheumatoid arthritis and the AIH.
I was without coverage while I was on sabbatical from teaching from which I still have existing debt. Additional costs continue to pile on even though I now have insurance
I sometimes forgo medications due to their high cost, as well as putting off doctor visits or recommended tests or therapies, but I try to keep it at a minimum.
