CHA helps Roseann to get her insurance to pay for her durable medical equipment

< More Stories >

Roseann has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and needed oxygen at home for the first time. Recently insured under a new plan, she was told that she would have to pay a co-pay of $500 a month for the oxygen.  On a limited income, Roseann could not afford this amount and reached out to the CHA advocate at Chenango Health Network.  After talking to Roseann’s plan, the CHA advocate was able to help Roseann get the prior authorization she needed for this durable medical equipment so it would be paid for by her insurance.

“Nothing short of a god-send - with nowhere to turn and not much hope, I had just about given up until CHA helped me!”  -Roseann M., Chenango County
