Deceptive Junk Insurance Plans Leave Patients Vulnerable [Video]

Deceptive Junk Insurance Plans Leave Patients Vulnerable

Junk insurance plans market themselves as quality, affordable coverage. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, these plans aren’t required to cover:

❌ Prescription drugs
❌ Hospitalizations
❌ Preventive screenings
❌ Maternity care

These plans also discriminate against cancer patients and others with serious health conditions. Because the coverage is so bad, patients are left vulnerable to sky-high bills at the exact moment they need help the most. Worst of all? Junk insurers rely on consumers’ confusion. It’s nearly impossible for even savvy shoppers to find out which health plans are junk.

When patients get sick, they should be able to focus on getting better — not figuring out why their insurer won’t pay for treatment. It’s time for lawmakers to act. Learn more at http://lls.org/undercovered.

Riedell, MD, University of Chicago Medicine, Chicago, IL, shares updates from the Phase III ZUMA-7 trial (NCT03391466) of the anti CD19 axicabtagene ciloleucel (axi-cel), a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy in patients with relapsed/refractory (r/r) large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL).

This interview took place at the 63rd ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition congress in Atlanta, GA.
