Lack of transportation is one of the biggest barriers to patient care. But when employers cover transportation for patients, it can lead to better health outcomes and lower overall costs. 

Casey Billington of Concierge Nurse Navigators explains why employers need to incorporate transportation into their health plan benefits so that patients can travel to doctor appointments or get an important second opinion.

And co-hosts Terry and Bob talk about the latest news from Washington, D.C., including the VA’s decision to cover a new Alzheimer’s treatment for veterans. Plus, a new bill in Congress, the HELP Copays Act, would prevent insurers from “double-dipping” into patient savings. Write to your representative to support this bill here!
