What Young Adults with Rare Conditions Need to Know About Health Insurance

August 14, 2020

The world of health insurance can appear complex and confusing. For young adults with rare and chronic conditions, navigating their coverage options for the first time may also require them to consider access to specific physicians, services, and therapies. We spoke to Colleen Huysman, a clinical social worker with the Bridges Adult Transition Program at Boston Children’s Hospital, and Sneha Dave founder and executive director of the Health Advocacy Summit, about the issues young adults with rare and chronic condition need to think about as they seek health coverage, the types of choices they will face, and how to best go about navigating this dense and opaque world. As a note, look for more topics like this at this year’s Global Genes Live event and going forward as the organization moves to increase educational efforts around managing the financial challenges of living with a rare disease.
