About the movement

HOLD INSURANCE COMPANIES LIABLE FOR DENIAL OF TREATMENT, AND STOP THE GOVERNMENT FROM DENYING CHRONIC PAIN PATIENTS MEDICATION

Insurance companies are responsible for a guarantee of service in exchange for payment of a premium. They should not deny testing when such is requested by a doctor for the benefit of a patient to make a diagnosis of illness or injury, if the doctor is acting within the scope of his legal obligation to his patient(s).

Also, the CDC and the DEA should not be allowed to dictate whether or not chronic pain patients are able to receive pain medications to maintain quality of life and have the ability to function as normally as possible, because of the addiction crisis that currently exists. CHRONIC PAIN PATIENTS ARE NOT DRUG ADDICTS, and we did not make the choice to become chronically ill! Stop treating patients who have been diagnosed with chronic illnesses like we are drug-abusing criminals!
