LGBTQ+ Medical Billing Focus Group

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.

If you are interested in participating, please fill out the survey here.

Passing It Forward: Black and Latinx LGBTQ+ Elders Sharing The Wisdom From Their Walk

"My name is Gabriella Perez-Hernandez, and I am a third-year student at Hunter College. Currently, I am acting as a student interviewer for a research project at CUNY entitled "Passing It Forward: Black and Latinx LGBTQ+ Elders Sharing The Wisdom From Their Walk". The aim of this project is for college students to interview older LGBTQ individuals of color as a means of preserving their legacy and wisdom for future generations
I am looking for people to interview and the requirements are that they must be be a person of color, 50 years of age or older, and identify as LGBTQ. As a 20 year old Puerto Rican lesbian, it would be an honor for me to get to speak with someone similar to my background of an older generation as a means of sharing their knowledge with me and with generations to come. The interviews would take place virtually over Zoom, and would be recorded to be placed in a public archive once the project is completed. More information can be found on the project's website here: https://socialjusticesexuality.com/passingitforward/. If anyone is interested, please tell them to message me at olympus.fire7@gmail.com for further information and to set up an interview."
