Danielle Burkett will present three of four PHA Live webinars on open enrollment. Join us at 2 p.m. ET each Thursday in October to get your insurance questions answered.

Find out how to choose an insurance plan that works for you by PHA’s Advocacy and Patient Access Program Manager Jaeger Spratt. Jaeger will cover insurance 101 terms, provide open enrollment advice and share important dates for 2022 in the first webinar in the series.

Tune in the next three Thursdays to hear from Danielle, a certified medical assistant at Duke University Hospital’s Pulmonary Vascular Disease Center for the past eight years. She works with insurance companies and specialty pharmacies to get pulmonary hypertension (PH) medication approved for her patients. She also helps patients get financial assistance for the expensive medicine.

Health care is Danielle’s second career. After her mother became ill, Danielle decided to leave her office manager job and return to school. She wanted to use her knowledge and customer service experience to work with patients.

Her favorite part of the job is being able to let patients know their treatment coverage was approved.

“It feels like a puzzle to solve,” she says. “I have the network and resources to find creative solutions for a patient who has been struggling to access the treatment they need.”

Danielle hopes attendees will learn at least one new thing from the PHA Live open enrollment webinars.

“If even one person can go back to their care team and get the treatment they need because of the knowledge I’ve shared here, it will have been a huge success,” she says.

Webinar topics include:

  • Oct. 6: Intro to Open Enrollment (Jaeger Spratt, M.S.W., advocacy and treatment access program manager).
  • Oct. 13: Medicare Overview (Danielle Burkett)
  • Oct. 20: Medicare Tips and Troubleshooting (Danielle Burkett)
