Patient advocates and patient service representatives work with patients and their families to help them navigate the healthcare system. They direct patients on a one-on-one basis to reliable health insurance resources; explain procedures and any costs associated with procedures; connect patients with appropriate doctors and specialists; review options for treatment; explain their financial responsibilities and more. For patients ineligible for insurance, the patient advocate will help them to complete our Sliding Fee Application, in order to help the patient access affordable treatment. A patient services representative, or “advocate,” is a trusted member of the healthcare team who supports and can even be designated to speak for a patient if the patient cannot speak for him/herself due to language barriers, illness or other complicating factors that create an obstacle to accessing treatment.
