Rheumatoid Arthritis - Patient Access to Care 

Patients Mariah Zebrowski Leach and Chantelle Marcial have worked with their doctors to find the right treatment for their rheumatoid arthritis.

As patient advocate Bob Tufts explains, it's a consequence of the bigger battle over who defines "value" in health care and whether insurance companies can turn patients into "little inhuman dots on a chart."
