In a saga that dates back to before Christmas I still do not have a home phototherapy unit. Sadly, documenting the insurance denials from Western Health Advantage (WHA), made no inroads with them. They denied coverage, my dermatologist and I appealed, and they denied the appeal of the denial. Simple. The next step to procure a home phototherapy unit would need to bypass insurance coverage.
Happy Valentine's Day! I can't believe Lori and I met about 25 years ago at U.C. Davis as undergraduates. We bonded very quickly over the experiences of living with lifelong health condtions. No one is going to be perfect at supporting another with challenging health conditions. But keeping a vow is not about being perfect. For us, it’s about friendship and being present. That’s the best gift that we could give each other.
Becoming an engaged patient takes initiative, but your health is worth it!
