Health insurers are responding to members impacted by Hurricane Harvey with solutions to expedite access to care and prescriptions, as well as donations to help rescue and recovery efforts. 

“Just like their members, health plans are a part of their communities and deeply committed to the wellness and safety of those who live there,” America’s Health Insurance Plans tells FierceHealthcare. “When a community is impacted by a tragic, disastrous event like we’re seeing unfold with this storm, plans connect immediately with state and local officials to offer support and ensure those impacted have swift access to the healthcare, resources and medical services they need.”
