Introduction to Healthcare Consumer Rights Foundation

Compass held up to setting sun looking over a lake

Welcome to our kickoff podcast to introduce what Healthcare Consumer Rights Foundation is all about and how we plan to help you navigate the complex healthcare system and to help folks understand their legal rights and options. Each “Fight Back” podcast will tell the personal story of someone who has been tripped up by the healthcare system in some way—insurance claims denied, not getting the referral to a specialist or medical procedure one needs, an unexpected “out of network” bill, and so forth. Then we will interview a relevant expert who can provide the insights, resources, and help to solve these kinds of problems while navigating our complex healthcare system. We want to empower you, the consumer, with the information that you need to fight back.
