Share Your Health Insurance Experience

Have you had challenges with your health insurance that has impacted your ability to access treatment or has created a financial burden? Let us know.

Please share your experience with your health insurance. Have you been subject to accumulators and maximizers? Have you encountered any issues accessing doctor-recommended diagnostic tests, medication, and/or treatments? For example, have you had to prove failure with one medication before you could try another that your doctor recommended? Has your insurance company required your doctor to obtain approval from the insurance company before writing a prescription? Has your insurer required you to switch to another medicine, even if your current medicine is working? Please describe your experience and how it's impacted your health and well-being.
