If unequal reimbursement has affected you or someone you know, please write a few sentences that tell a personal story. You should include information such as status regarding your cancer (age, when diagnosed, health today, treatment needs). If you are writing about someone else, please use only their first name and their relationship to you.

Also be sure to include your experience such as: I did not get the care I need because insurance reimbursed more for a different treatment; I have gone into debt to pay for what insurance doesn’t cover; my treatment was delayed waiting for coverage to kick in.
