Who Needs a Healthcare Advocate?

by Joanna Smith on May 18, 2010

Such a new field, with many people offering various services. But who needs an advocate?
anyone worried about talking with their doctor;
anyone going into the hospital;
someone with a newly identified condition; people wondering what questions to ask of their doctor; anyone confused about their insurance; someone with questions about healthcare reform; if you’ve received a bill you don’t understand for a healthcare provider. All these people need advocates to explain, problem solve and follow you through the healthcare maze–no matter what part of it you’re in!
