Welcome to The Torch
The goal of The Torch is to support our members (and those that care about them) with straightforward and actionable information. The goal is to help members avoid costly health care mistakes and advocate for themselves when it comes to solutions that can help fix our broken system. Topics are limited to issues that impact our members’ insurance and medical costs such as medical billing errors, getting care in the least expensive setting and health reform initiatives that can either move us forward or set us back.
