GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - Many people in North Dakota are concerned about the rising cost of health care, so Blue Cross Blue Shield wants your feedback for solutions.

People in the Grand Forks area got to voice their concerns and ask questions regarding health care as the beginning of a series of community discussions in the state.

Some people wanted to know why certain things are not covered by health insurance.

Others asked what they could do to help bring premiums down.

The moderators say health care is a complex problem, but personal stories about piling costs may help form solutions.

"My son has autism, or is on the autism spectrum. He's got speech therapy, occupational therapy and behavioral therapy has worked really well for him, but it's not covered by anything," Kristin Miller said.

The community discussion continues Thursday in Jamestown and then Fargo on Monday.
