Episode 40: Should I Go Outside My Insurance To Get Fibromyalgia Treatment? Ask The Coach

In this episode of our Ask the Coach series, Tami answers a question sent in from a listener: Should I go outside my insurance to get fibromyalgia treatment?

So many fibromyalgia patients struggling to feel better focus on what their insurance will provide for them. The reality is that no matter how good your doctor is, or how good your insurance coverage is, there will be things you’ll need to pay for out of pocket if you want to feel your best.
