May Story of the Month

So what is “Advocacy” anyway?

Advocacy can mean 100 different things to as many people, but at Young & Healthy it always takes on a very practical meaning.

Jason, age 24 (an age that some might consider “young and invincible”), learned he was young but not invincible.  Stage three leukemia has a way of dismissing such a notion very quickly.

In addition to the fears associated with cancer, Jason’s medication costs were $860.00 per week!  So, what do you do when your finances just do not allow you to expend that kind of money?  Answer:  You do nothing, including taking your like saving medication.

Luckily, a social worker at Huntington Hospital referred Jason to Young & Healthy.  Our insurance advocate uncovered “every rock” until he found an insurance plan that could better align with Jason’s needs.  Now, Jason has an insurance plan with $100.00 premiums and a $5.00 prescription plan, which is much more affordable.

Perhaps our insurance ADVOCATE gave Jason another shot at feeling invincible!
