“Danielle, with the Reduce my Costs program, was so incredibly helpful! Danielle was friendly and responsive when I reached out to her and worked with my doctor's office until everything was resolved and I could schedule my procedure. With her help, I saved hundreds of dollars! I would highly recommend this program to all Harvard Pilgrim members!”
