What We Do
What is a private patient advocate?
A private patient advocate is an individual who works with patients and their loved ones to look out for the patient’s best interest and ensure they are receiving the proper care necessary for treatment. A private patient advocate differs from an advocate that is provided complimentary by healthcare systems or insurance companies. A private patient advocate works directly for YOU!
Why do you need a patient advocate?
The healthcare system is complicated and difficult to navigate for an individual without background or experience in the field. Three main reasons you may need a patient advocate are for communication, understanding, and coordination.
Communication – Patient advocates help individuals communicate with their healthcare providers.
Understanding – Patient advocates help patients understand medical lingo and appreciate their different treatment options.
Coordination – Patient advocates help coordinate office visits and appointments for various testing and procedures.
