Reducing your medical bills

Did you know that the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S. is medical error?

A staggering 250,000 Americans die each year from preventable occurrences. The numbers are sad but true. As patient advocates, we make your health and well-being the number one priority through a wide range of services, beyond just helping you find the right doctor for your needs.

 

Navigating the U.S. healthcare system isn’t easy. As patient advocates, we’re here to help you and guide you through it.

 

After working with over 2000 patients, we’re all too familiar with the system’s flaws and the life-disrupting impacts it can have on you and your family.

We Help You with Physicians & Hospitals

If you’re wondering how we work to get you the best treatment possible, the answer is in our process. This reduces the risk of preventable negative events, overtreatment and the all-too-common occurrence of being administered (and charged for) unnecessary tests.

 

Here’s how we do it:

  1. We gather all of your medical files, preventing duplicate tests and unnecessary treatments
  2. We help you choose the right physician based on your medical history and your current condition according to medical criteria
  3. We help you get a second opinion (sometimes in honor roll hospitals or by telemedicine)
  4. We help coordinate your care between different specialists and hospitals
  5. We help you interact with your physician, ensuring everything he or she says and prescribes is clearly understood by you (and that no alternative could offer a better or more affordable outcome)
  6. We help you make difficult medical decisions by finding out the chances of success of every alternative and we coordinate the treatment between the different physicians, nurses and other medical professionals involved to prevent miscommunication

We Help with Insurance Issues & Billing Errors

Unfortunately, insurance issues and billing errors are extremely common. 

 

We fight for your rights. We provide you with good insurance plans, we dispute and even appeal insurance issues (especially in the case of coverage denials) and make sure payments are sent to you on time and according to the benefits you’re entitled to.

 

We also provide bill controls & bill negotiations. Since we know the laws and we know what to say to providers, we can fight for you to get an error-free bill. In many cases, we can even work with hospitals and physicians to reduce your bill.

Conflict Prevention and Resolution

Conflicts in healthcare often lead to high costs plus long and painful lawsuits with questionable outcomes. 

 

We specialize in conflict resolution between physicians and patients to save you time (and money) and find quick solutions that can avoid further problems. We do this with physicians, hospitals and also with members of your own family, if necessary. We are here for you.

Practical Advice

We empower you with whatever knowledge and resources you need to build your confidence and to improve your understanding of the complicated U.S. healthcare system.

Services for Expats & Medical Tourism to USA

If you’re an expatriate in the US, we can help you get connected to the best physicians available, no matter where you are in the country.

 

Finding great healthcare in the U.S. is easier said than done. Fortunately, we’ve been organizing treatments for patients coming from abroad for years and currently have 1 to 2 patients every day of the year flying to a physician we’ve recommended.

 

We also understand the added element of having to seek treatment from a doctor in a culture other than your own (even if you have adapted to the American culture). With years of experience and thousands of patients accompanied, we will find you the hospital and physician best adapted to your condition among the best honor roll facilities nationwide.

5 good reasons why you need a patient advocate

  1. Patients typically keep in mind 10% of what a physician tells them during a consultation even if it’s life-saving instructions.
    We prepare you before the consultation so you make the most of each contact with your physician. We teach you how to get and keep this vital information.
  2. Less than half of prescriptions are taken as directed (causing 10% of all hospital admissions).
    We translate the explanations of your physician (often given with hard-to-understand medical words), prepare and train you to make the most of your (usually short) physician consultation. If needed, we search for alternative treatments. We also set easy reminders so you don’t forget to take your medication.
  3. Up to 18% of hospital admissions may result in harm as a consequence of procedure, medication, hospital-acquired infections, diagnostic procedures and falls.  We help you to avoid hospital stays when possible, keep notes of decisions and provide a second opinion service in order to avoid overtreatment. We provide you with checklists to ensure that everybody on the medical team has the same level of information and we also help with team coordination.
  4. We are a patient advocacy company founded and managed by a medical doctor. As such, putting the patient’s (your) interest first is the guiding principle behind each action we take.
  5. Many patients already suffer from a chronic condition (roughly 50% of American adults). We help you address the issue now and help you get exactly what you need from a medical professional.
