Share Your Maternal Mental Health Care/Claim/Payment Denial
2020 Mom's mission is to close gaps in maternal mental health, with an aim of ensuring all women are screened, diagnosed and receive the treatment they desire and need.
Though many women have health insurance at the time of their maternal mental health challenges, often insurance can be a significant barrier to care. We believe if our employers/ourselves, or the state/federal government are paying for health insurance benefits, then benefits should be available and easy to access.
Please take 2 minutes to share any experience you have had in the past two years. Your stories will help us, drive change.
