Lisa & Owen's Story

Lisa and Owen's Story from Sugarhouse Media on Vimeo.

Lisa's health insurance problems began after she left her husband. Then then she got sick. She struggled to find health insurance that would cover both her and her autistic son. Health Law Advocates helped her untangle the paperwork, made phone calls on her behalf, and ultimately helped her son see a doctor who specialized in autism. That marked the first time he had been able to see an autism specialist.

The Right Medicine for Reid

The Right Medicine for Reid from Sugarhouse Media on Vimeo.

Reid Panayakul is a 10-year-old boy who has struggled with debilitating seizures his whole life. He was eventually diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy. Doctors discovered a drug that helped reduce Reid’s seizures called Stiripentol. The drug could be imported from France; however, because it was not approved by the FDA, insurers didn’t want to pay for it. Health Law Advocates helped the Panayakul family secure coverage.

This video was produced for Health Law Advocate’s Annual Benefit Breakfast on November 13, 2013.
