Healthcare Advocacy with Heart

Benefits of Having a Private Patient Advocate

  • More effective healthcare and improved outcomes

  • Feeling in control of your healthcare

  • Safer healthcare, someone looking out for you

  • Financial savings

  • Peace of mind, the space to focus on healing


Do you feel confused, overwhelmed or frustrated with your healthcare?

Do you need help understanding and sorting out insurance and medical bills?

Are you feeling frightened and unsure about a new diagnosis?

Do you have a family member in need of medical care that you cannot be with?

As a private patient advocate, I work directly with you in helping you navigate the maze of the healthcare system and support you in obtaining the healthcare you need, want, and deserve.

A Few of the Ways I Can Support You

  • Coordinate and accompany you to medical appointments, help you better understand what your doctor is saying and help you ask the right questions, so that you feel comfortable and empowered with your medical care

  • Help you learn more about your medical condition and treatment options

  • Provide information to help you make difficult medical decisions

  • Review your prescriptions and medications, explain what they are for and review with you and your doctor if needed

  • Help you navigate the insurance maze,  help you file health insurance claims, dispute denials, and manage or reduce your hospital and medical bills

  • Help you understand your end-of-life planning and paperwork like living wills, DNRs or other advance directives

  • Be there for your family member when you cannot. Be your eyes and ears. Help your family come to agreement on decisions that need to be made for a loved one who needs health-related assistance
