I am a healthcare industry expert with over two decades of medical billing management experience and vast experience with the intricacies of navigating all types of payment claim issues. It was in direct response to what I saw as a lack of resources for patients to effectively anticipate and manage medical expenses that I created ADVIMED, my Patient Advocacy company.
Now working on the side of
patients, I assist them with resolving the many issues they may face with
medical providers and insurers. My services include: patient
advocacy, bill auditing, fee negotiations, medical account management, insurance appeals and more. I am a certified mediator, and negotiate settlements or reduced fees with providers.
Applying my insider knowledge, familiarity with all aspects of the healthcare industry, creativity and skills, I present options, advise on strategy and find solutions. I foster collaboration and encourage dialogue to bring about successful resolutions. I bring patients the assurance that a bill is truly owed or fight a claim incorrectly processed.
I have written a guide to free
resources, assistance, and support for cancer patients, and to methods and tips to save on medical costs.
I lecture at local Cancer Support Community Centers on various ways to save healthcare money and effectively resolve financial, insurance or billing issues.
Read my blogs for practical solutions, relevant information, useful news and insider tips on getting the best out of the healthcare industry. I strongly believe in educating and encouraging patients to become more active, and better informed participants in their care.
My goal as a professional private
patient advocate is to provide my clients with personalized,
expert, dedicated and trustworthy assistance. I pride myself on strong work ethics, compassion and integrity.
Even though there exists no established
national or state certification or license, I abide by HIPAA guidelines and to
the Patient Advocate Code of Conduct.I am a certified mediator, able to practice in all 50 states.
