“Fight Back” is the Healthcare Consumer Rights Foundation’s podcast. Each episode tells the personal story of someone who has been tripped up by the healthcare system in some way—insurance claims denied, not getting the referral to a specialist or medical procedure one needs, an unexpected “out of network” bill, and so forth. Then we interview a relevant expert who can provide the insights, resources, and help to solve these kinds of problems while navigating our complex healthcare system.
