LGBTQ+ Medical Billing Focus Group
Calling all LGBTQ+ people of New York State! Have you ever received a bill from a hospital or a doctor that was impossible to understand? Do you feel like hospitals need to be more transparent about how they charge patients?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we want to hear from YOU! Raising Women’s Voices- NY is a nonprofit organizing working to make sure that the voices of women and LGBTQ+ people are represented in the health care policies that affect their lives.
We will be hosting a focus group to learn about some of the unfair medical billing practices that often cause New Yorkers to go into medical debt. The focus group will be on January 27 from 7:30-9:00 pm. We will provide $50 compensation for your active participation. Because of COVID-19, we will be hosting this focus group online. Please note that we are looking for participants who have private insurance or no insurance, but not Medicaid.
