This podcast

makes me feel less alone. I work and have a great job. I have insurance that is pretty good. I’m lucky in some ways but I have medical conditions I did not ask for and that there is no known way to prevent. I can’t afford all my medical needs. hearing this podcast reminds me I am not as alone in this boat as I feel sometimes.

Empowering Podcast

I am currently dealing with issues after a (luckily!) lifetime of health. I have no idea how to navigate the healthcare system, other then purchasing insurance. This podcast give me ideas on my treatment options and choices (and how to advocate for myself when it comes to billing). I had NO idea I could shop around for an MRI! All I know is when my doctor ordered it, I went down the hall and got it, then got a $3,000 bill, $1,500 of which I was responsible for. Last time I do that! The same goes for prescriptions, I’m willing to take the time to do some research and shopping around for reasonable prices (hello Canadian pharmacies !!!). Please keep up the good work, this podcast should be required listening when you check into your doctor’s office
