Why should I have a Patient Health Advocate – Private Case Manager, isn’t that what my physician does?
Doctors and their office staff simply aren’t allowed the time or resources to provide the extra assistance. Professional Patient Advocates and Case managers will take the time to navigate the complex medical maze, just focusing on YOUR needs. Your healthcare decisions need to be made with you not for you! When you are an active member of your healthcare team, your results will improve.

No. Our services are private pay. We are professional health advocates working for Patient Advocacy Foundation. We work directly for you and have YOUR best interest at heart. You can contact us about how our sliding scale for our services works.
