“An apple a day keeps the doctor away” or so the old saying goes – but we all know its Eve, a.k.a. DOCTOR MOM, who has the most influence on our health. Doctor Mom handles the ear ache, the tooth ache, the stomach ache, the runny nose, the allergies, the first aid and so much more. Doctor Mom chooses the doctors, makes the appointments, goes to the appointment, get the prescriptions, the x-rays, the blood work and then, in many cases, Doctor Mom pays the medical bills. Ladies we need HELP!
With healthcare costs rising in double digits, the Apple & Eve Health Coalition was formed to help us in our roles as Doctor Mom! Whose book do you trust, what website can you rely on, how do you appeal a health insurance rejection, where can you turn for reliable assistance, what about our own health issues and where can I save money? What’s an MD vs. a DO? What vitamins should we take? What happens when the money runs out? Should I travel abroad for medical and dental care or order prescriptions on the internet? Can I take medical mileage off my taxes? Working with a social worker and how do I help our parents? Living Wills, Power of Attorney, Do Not Resuscitate (DNR), Medicare, Medigap, oh my! All real questions Doctor Mom faces every day.
