Patient Advocacy

Patient Services Overview

Our Patient Advocacy services simplify healthcare for patients. Patient Advocates help our customers improve their healthcare experiences by working with them to answer all of their healthcare questions and resolve their medical and financially related concerns. Our services help our customers feel more “in control” of their healthcare, are conscientious consumers of healthcare and feel hopeful about their health. We also prevent and detect healthcare fraud, waste and abuse to help our customers lower healthcare costs, spend less time on resolving financial healthcare problems and relieve their financial and emotional distress.

Problem

Healthcare is complicated. Patients often find themselves "stuck" or "lost" in our fragmented healthcare system. Current problems include but are not limited to:

  • Soaring Healthcare Costs.
  • It continues to cost our country and our patients more and more. In 2012, healthcare is expected to be a $4.4 trillion dollar industry.

  • Overpayments.
  • Over the last 12 years patients have paid $1.4 trillion in overpayments.

  • Fraud, waste and abuse.
  • $60 – $120 billon each year is lost to fraud, waste and abuse. About 250,000 Americans per year are victims of Medical Identity Theft.

Solution

We make healthcare simple. Our Personal Healthcare Advocacy services navigate patients and their loved ones through the complex world of healthcare. Our Patient Advocates answer patient questions and resolve patient concerns. We help patients assemble and maintain personal health records and use their personal health information effectively, protect patients from medical and financial errors, help overturn patient denials and guard patients against Medical Identity Theft and fraud, waste and abuse.



Healthcare Fraud

In 2007, ten individuals, including four doctors, were indicted in a scheme to defraud patients and insurance companies in connection with allergy testing and shots.
