No Insurance Often Means Substandard Migraine Treatment
People with Migraines face many challenges. That should go without saying. It's especially disturbing when insurance, or lack thereof, makes living with Migraine disease even more burdensome.
A new study published in the April 13, 2010, print issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology verifies what Migraineurs have long known... People with no health insurance are less likely than the privately insured to receive proper treatment for their Migraines...
One of the researchers, Dr. Rachel Nardin, commented:
"The tragedy is that we know how to treat this disabling condition. But because they are uninsured or inadequately insured, millions of Americans suffer needlessly... Optimizing migraine care requires improvement in our health care systems as well as educating physicians to prescribe the best available drug and behavioral treatments."
