This week, the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) deliberates the fate of insurance coverage for patients with lupus.
In this episode, Mollee Huffman shares her diagnosis of lupus, how it impacted her Navy career and day-to-day life.
Plus, Terry and Dr. Bob look at how hospitals are making it impossible for patients to Google search their prices, drug pricing legislation in Congress (H.R. 3), and what ICER’s poor track record for undervaluing drugs signals to the lupus community awaiting their review.
