The following links provide access to governmental and agency resources over a broad spectrum of subject matter. One can learn where to file a complaint against an insurer or provider (which is your right). Numerous state resources are listed, as well as those that inform about laws governing at the federal level (Affordable Care Act), etc. All in all, some great resources here—a good starting place for research on a myriad of topics.
Mainstream news is real news. The following publications, both print and online, are reliable sources, presenting factual information through seasoned journalistic efforts. There is nothing “fake” about these news sources. They contain important information to help better understand how and what factors are affecting your healthcare. Besides, one of the best things we can do for our health is to stimulate our minds in a positive manner by reading. Not only will we will learn what to do and not to do, we will become healthier as a result of reading. That is real—nothing fake about it.
Face it. The cost of healthcare is outrageous. Financial challenges frequently get in the way of patients obtaining the care and medication they need. If you lack adequate health insurance or financial resources to afford your healthcare needs, look into the following resources—some assist with obtaining prescriptions at greatly reduced prices; others help with free or low-pay medications; others provide resources for disease-specific assistance. They might help you or someone you know.
A group of only 537 elected individuals at the Federal level literally has the power to take away or radically affect your healthcare. However, without voting, and letting our representative(s) know what we think about a particular bill, each of us is leaving those choices to others. Now more than ever, with the Affordable Care Act under siege, pharmaceutical companies out of control, insurance companies profiting only by denying us our healthcare, and a trend toward reducing protective regulations, it is more essential than ever that we do something.
