Patient Advocacy

Patient Advocacy

Navigating the healthcare system is challenging. It is common to feel lost and overwhelmed especially if you have a diagnosis that has changed your life. It is easy to get lost in the shuffle and not receive the care that you need. I have personally experienced the frustrations of the health care system, poor provider practice, and insurance (health and disability) company red tape nuances. Daily, I hear the troubles that my colleagues in healthcare have when they seek medical care. This makes me wonder how anyone navigates these complex systems and advocate for themselves when they do not have the healthcare training that I or my colleagues are fortunate to have.
This is why it is important to have someone on your side to directly advocate for you, assist you with navigating the complexities of health care, educate you on your diagnosis, provide questions to ask your provider, or simply point you in the right direction.
Patient advocacy services may include but are not limited to health education, medical diagnosis and treatment education, assistance with navigating health care systems, assistance with health insurance and disability insurance issues, and acting as your advocate with your healthcare provider.
