    What is the biggest challenge you face in providing health care for your family?

    Is it money? Time? Finding the right coverage? Perhaps a pre-existing condition is getting in the way?

    Share your story! And, if you had a health care challenge that you overcame, tell us how you did it.

    I don't know if you've taken a look, but on the right side of this page under "Resources" we have some tips for "Affording Your Prescriptions" that may help.

    Thanks for replying,

    Byroney
