Hospital and Provider Payment Reduction Negotiations
When insurance coverage is denied or otherwise unavailable, we interact with providers and their billing companies on your behalf; seeking to negotiate a reduced rate. This can be critical, as the high costs of hospital treatment and other medical services can literally lead to financial ruin. Medical debt is the number one cause for personal bankruptcy in the country. Also, the anxiety and stress of dealing with overwhelming bills can be debilitating.
We stand between you and the billing agents – negotiating reductions with your prior approval. At times, reductions in fees can be obtained even when one has insurance coverage. Independent Patient Advocates are almost always more successful in obtaining reductions and preferential payment plans than patients on their own.
