Here are real-life stories, serving as sentinel cases.
These can serve to illustrate the:
- dis-advantages(!) of non-insurance
- consequences of bad coverage
- enrollment challenges and successes
- challenges and triumphs of this outreach effort
These will also be made available to media sources and to other activist groups seeking examples to illustrate important points.
If you have a story you want to submit, please send it as an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please be sure that any clinical information (PHI) covered by HIPAA is entirely anonymized (change the name, gender, age and disease if you have to!) or explicitly authorized by the patient.
Explain within the story why this is NOT a HIPAA violation.
