PATIENT ADVOCACY AND HEALTHCARE LIAISON

Based out of Chicago, Illinois, we provide professional patient healthcare advocacy services in the Chicagoland area and nationwide.

Q:
What is an independent patient advocate?
A:
A private patient advocate is a trained professional who serves as an intermediary between patients and families and their healthcare providers, which may include institutions such as hospitals, skilled nursing homes and assisted living facilities, and insurance companies. The role of the advocate is to empower patients and family members to make informed and educated decisions about their health care. Patient advocates serve as champions and help you navigate the health care maze. We are not physicians, nurses, social workers, or lawyers. We save you time and money, direct and guide you to the best possible resources, and do what is necessary for you to be in control of your own health care.
Q:
Are patient advocacy services covered by insurance?
A:
Our services are fee-based or project-based, and generally not covered by insurance. Each advocate sets his/her own fee. Our fee is one of the lowest of any advocacy firm in the country. We frequently will take on selected cases on a pro bono basis, as our priority is to help people. It is important to be compensated for our services, but we recognize that what is most important is the health and welfare of our fellow human beings. Whenever we get a call, we will always listen. If we can help, we will. If we think you can be better served by another advocate or resource, we will provide you with that information.
Q:
If patients and families have physicians, social workers, and other medical providers, then why do they need a patient advocate?
A:
Although medical providers are genuinely committed to the healthcare needs, and welfare of their patients, they are employed by their medical group or their hospital. Some hospitals have customer service professionals who are called patient advocates or navigators. But these people are primarily accountable to their employer and not you. Private patient advocates work for and are directly accountable to the patient and his/her family.

Passionate dedication for his clients

Thankful beyond measure for the passion and dedication Avrom has. Without him, I don’t think my daughter and I would have had the positive outcome we now have. I am so thankful and blessed to have had his knowledge and expertise!!!!!

Compassionate as he is knowledgeable  

As a concerned family member of a loved one who lives over 1,600 miles away in a different country, having a patient advocate to help navigate the world of American healthcare is an absolute necessity. Finding a patient advocate who is as compassionate as he is knowledgeable was the answer to my prayers! Avi Fox fights for my cousin’s rights as if she were his own family member. He’s an excellent communicator, fulfills every promise, provides regular status updates and consistently exceeds my expectations. I literally sleep better at night knowing that Avi is looking out for my cousin’s best interests and I’m extremely grateful to have him on my side. Anyone with a loved one in need would be lucky to have Avi on their team!
