Letters to newspaper editors
« on: November 26, 2014, 05:19:17 PM »

All,

As another attempt at awareness it was suggested that I write a letter to the local newspaper editor. I live north of Indianapolis and the Indianapolis Star is one of the papers with a pretty wide subscription base. I did draft and submit a letter and was pleasantly surprised to find out in a few weeks that it had been published. Following is an online link to the article if you are interested in taking a look.

WOW! I think that you hit the right nail on the head with that letter to the editor!

Maybe some of the insurers will ''just happen'' to see it and maybe take it into consideration. Also, forum members might use it when they ask for their insurers to cover the medical expenses associated with treating Peyronies Disease as well as Erectile Dysfunction that sometimes comes along with Peyronies Disease.

Any member having success with getting coverage for the Peyronies Disease therapy should report it on the forum for others to use a leverage when applying for insurance coverage, etc.
