Healthcare decisions can be complicated, especially when you see the price tag.
Deductibles and copays. What’s covered and what’s not covered. Dietary requirements. Taking time off from work for appointments… the financial needs of other people in your household.
Your bank account… the future…
Making healthcare decisions can be hard, especially when you factor in the finances. In fact, the financial considerations may be what makes healthcare decisions so hard. Everything has a price tag attached to it. Leaving you feeling helpless as you watch the expenses adding up.

I am really interested in any advice you have to share about how to take the best possible care of yourself – and get the best possible treatment for your chronic condition – while managing your finances.

Need some ideas?
Looking forward to hearing from you!
