Being a Rare Disease ePatient at MedX

Last month I attended the Stanford Medicine X conference, on scholarship, as an ePatient delegate. I've since had the chance to speak with Daniel Levine, on RARECast, about my experience, and conference topics of interest to the rare disease community.

  1. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandates that health insurance companies pay for preventive health visits. However, that term is somewhat deceptive, as consumers may feel they can visit the doctor for just a general checkup, talk about anything, and the visit will be paid 100% with no copay. In fact, some, and perhaps most, health insurance companies only cover the A and B recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Health Services Task Force. These recommendations cover such topics as providing counseling on smoking cessation, alcohol abuse, obesity, and tests for blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes (for at risk patients), and some cancer screening physical exams.
