Eczema and Your Health Care

You’re in control of your eczema, not the other way around. It’s time to feel empowered.

There’s no better time than now to become an advocate for your own health and well-being. You deserve access to the best health care and treatments available. We’ll show you how to get it.

The right insurance for you

Navigating the health insurance marketplace can feel intimidating, but it doesn’t have to. We’ll give you the lowdown on federal programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program and state-specific health insurance exchanges/marketplaces. We’ll also walk you through your private insurance options and show you how to get the most out of your employer’s health insurance plan as a person with eczema or as a caregiver of someone with eczema.

Help with medical bills and prescription costs

No matter your income, or whether or not you have health insurance, you can still get financial assistance on your medical bills and prescriptions. We’ll show you ways to cut costs through programs sponsored by the government, your employer and pharmaceutical drug manufacturers.

Your rights as a patient

You have many, starting with your right to make informed decisions about your treatment options and to receive emergency medical care even if you can’t afford it. We’ll explain your health information disclosure privacy rights to which health care providers must abide, then we’ll walk you through your insurance rights, including how to file an appeal if your coverage is denied or canceled.
