Event description

Description

You have a health insurance plan, but can you find a doctor or hospital that takes it?

Do you run into these kinds of situations?

  • I tried to make an appointment with my doctor, but the office is only open during work hours, and I can’t take time off work.

  • I had to call 3 doctors’ offices before I could find a doctor that was taking new patients.

  • My doctor referred me to a specialist, but she’s not in my network so I can’t see her to get the care I need.

  • I found a doctor who specializes in the care I need, but he doesn’t speak my language.

  • None of the doctors in my health plan’s network know how to treat my specific health concerns.

YOU can help make health insurance better for yourself and everyone in New York!

JOIN IN A SPECIAL LISTENING SESSION ...and GET $50!

A statewide network of consumer health advocates are conducting research on how people across New York choose and use health insurer provider networks. We want to know how YOU use your insurance to see doctors and use hospitals you like and want, and that take your insurance. We will share our overall findings with New York officials to make sure these networks really do work for people. Personal confidentiality and anonymity is assured.

RSVP application and confirmed enrollment is required!

Let us know if you're interested in participating in this session. Then we'll contact you to determine if you're the kind of person we need to hear from. In particular, we want to talk with people who either buy their own health insurance or who have to use a specific health care provider network offered through an employer.
