Why Is Healthcare Important to You?

Share Your Story and We'll Take It to Congress

All of us need quality and affordable health coverage, but if you have a lung disease or other pre-existing condition it’s even more urgent. Problems with health insurance can be a major obstacle to taking care of your medical condition.

Have you or a loved one been denied health insurance or charged more for coverage because you have a pre-existing condition like asthma, COPD or lung cancer? Did you sign up for healthcare but then find out that your plan didn't cover your treatments? Have you received a big medical bill for care at the emergency room or hospital that you thought was covered by your health plan?

Millions of Americans with lung disease need access to healthcare coverage that includes the treatments and services they need at an affordable cost. Share your story with us to help our nation’s leaders understand why quality and affordable healthcare coverage is so important.
