Liz Murphy, patient voice, WashingtonCAN


Liz Murphy, a patient voice brought by WashingtonCAN, describes her life-long battle to maintain health insurance coverage for her childhood diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes, need for medication, and need for double organ transplant as an adult. As a teacher she always opted for the highest level of coverage, she had to ration medication due to insufficient insurance coverage. She was denied care by the Mayo Clinic because of too much medical debt. She makes a strong voice for universal healthcare.
