Woman fights health insurer in months-long wait for birth control
Long Beach Press-Telegram

Frustrated by a potentially six-month wait to obtain birth control, a Tarzana woman has launched a social media campaign against her health insurer, saying the company’s list of physicians is misleading and a referral to an out-of-network provider would mean fronting a $1,200 bill.

Rosie Wiklund, 29, said Wednesday she’s received much support and feedback on Facebook and Twitter since she began writing about how difficult it has been to access a female doctor who can prescribe an IUD, also known as an intrauterine device.
