A Patient Advocate's View

The health system is changing before our very eyes.

We recently have a number of complaints from patients who have been stuck with large medical and hospital bills for things that used to be covered. Patients are going in for an ultrasound and being billed privately for use of the room. People are getting medications in the hospital and getting a gigantic co-pay bill because the medication wasn’t submitted correctly. As the health care system makes changes to protect themselves from the Affordable Care Act, how do patients make sure they have enough coverage? In this article, firefighters are questioning which coverage will be better, the one offered by the government to the public or the one they have for themselves?
