In the past I worked in the medical field doing insurance work. I verified benefits and then argued with insurance companies about paying claims. It is not hard for me to believe this story about how insurance companies are eliminating, denying, and severely limiting coverage for eating disorder treatment.
All of us need to fight for the benefits we are entitled to under our insurance plans and we need to keep pushing for the kind of coverage that will truly help people be well.
We are proud of our partnership with the Center for Hope, a comprehensive eating disorder program. The small group work we do with them each week is rewarding and often profound. If you or someone you know is battling an eating disorder seek help.
