Do you have a health care horror story? Has your health insurance
failed you? Did your insurance company deny coverage of a celiac blood
test or endoscopy? Have you gone to the pharmacy to pick up a
prescription medication only to find out that it isn’t covered and
going to cost you a fortune? Would you like to see a dietitian for
nutritional counseling but your insurance won’t cover it and it is too
expensive to pay for out of pocket? If you answered yes to any of these
questions, I need your help!
As part of the national health
care reform team, I’m looking to show lawmakers and the media how
patients with chronic conditions like celiac disease are in desperate
need of changes to the health care system to help them better manage
their health on a daily basis.
I’m working with Health Care for America Now, a national coalition made up of more than 700 organizations representing nearly 30 million people. The goal is to win comprehensive quality, affordable health care in 2009.
