Arthritis Foundation Launches "Prescription for Access" Toolkit to Support People With Arthritis by Delivering Resources to Help With Health Coverage and Denied Claims
Date:1/31/2017

ATLANTA, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The pain and management of arthritis may not be visible, but it is incredibly real to the 50 million Americans diagnosed with arthritis and related diseases. Adding to this population's challenges are mounting concerns about the future of America's health care system and how to navigate its complexities. In response to the arthritis community, the Arthritis Foundation launched Prescription for Access, an initiative to address the arthritis community's concerns and provide people with arthritis the necessary tools to help them live a life of Yes.

As part of the Prescription for Access initiative, the Foundation recently held multiple meetings with health care executives, policymakers and patients to better understand the challenges patients with arthritis face in today's health care system. From these meetings, the Foundation believes the most logical way to "re-connect" America's health care system is to involve patients and make sure their voices are represented in the new legislation.

"We're fighting for millions of Americans with arthritis to make health care more accessible and to reduce the complexity of accessing and staying on their medications," said Sandie Preiss, vice president of advocacy and access, Arthritis Foundation. "A critical part of the Prescription for Access initiative is equipping patients with the tools and resources they need to understand their health care and how to get to 'Yes' when managing a claim denial through the appeal process."

The Prescription for Access Toolkit puts the necessary tools and resources right at patients' fingertips. This powerful resource helps patients better understand their health care coverage options, determine how their current plan meets their arthritis care needs as well as guide them through the clam denial process, including step-by-step instructions, sample letters and consumer assistance information.
