AskMyAdvocate.com (http://www.askmyadvocate.com), your personal healthcare navigators and leader in patient advocacy services announced today that they have completed their name change from Medical Billing Advocates of Florida and launched their new consumer web site, AskMyAdvocate.com. In conjunction with this announcement, the Company also confirmed that it had finalized its spinoff from Putnam Healthcare Services and is now an independent entity.
AskMyAdvocate.com was launched to provide healthcare consumers with access to a comprehensive suite of patient advocacy (http://www.askmyadvocate.com/why-advocacy.aspx) services that, until now, have not been readily available. Expanding on a decade-long history in healthcare, successfully negotiating client savings on medical bills through a proactive audit process with providers and payers, AskMyAdvocate.com helps consumers with challenges in the following service areas (http://www.AskMyAdvocate.com/services.aspx): Medical Billing Disputes, Insurance Denial Appeals, Prescription Drug Pricing Comparison, Diagnosis Research, My Health Plan, Provider Referrals, Provider Fee Negotiating, Case and Care Management, Nursing Home Research and Assisted Living Coordination.
The Company’s services are provided to clients on an as-needed basis by professional Case Advocates; however, AskMyAdvocate.com’s new low-cost annual membership program offers complimentary services and consultations, members-only discounts and service credits, as well as toll free telephone access to the AskMyAdvocate.com Member Care team. AskMyAdvocate.com services are also offered as a package to employers who want to augment their benefits program (http://www.askmyadvocate.com/Services.aspx) with a high-value cost-effective resource that provides healthcare-related tools and guidance to employees who might otherwise direct inquiries to an often understaffed or unqualified Human Resources Department.
«Our nation’s healthcare system is challenging for most consumers to navigate,» says Anna Inglett (http://askmyadvocate.com/Blogs.aspx), President, AskMyAdvocate.com. «We work hard for our members to help them understand all of the options available to them and are a strong voice on their behalf when challenges arise. Our comprehensive package of services helps healthcare consumers maximize their insurance benefits and get better results from their care providers.» Ms. Inglett also indicated that they regularly save their members thousands of dollars on their medical bills through the audit process or by negotiating directly with providers or insurance companies.
AskMyAdvocate.com also announced today that it is offering new members an account credit of up to $100.00 for use toward the Company’s premium advocacy services. Already a success, this program is expected to continue through December 31, 2010.
