Once the initial shock wears off, the challenges of a being diagnosed with a critical medical condition can be overwhelming. What are your choices? What's covered? What's next?

That's where our member advocates come in.

Extra care for extraordinary cases

Member Advocates can help walk some members through especially difficult times by:

  • Obtaining pre-authorizations and prior approvals
  • Understanding medical jargon
  • Navigating health care networks and managing physician referrals
  • Walking through medical bills and Explanations of Benefits (EOBs)
  • Speaking to medical staff with you, or on your behalf
  • Suggesting community resources for services not covered by insurance
  • And more

  • Are born severely premature
  • Have congenital defects
  • Have pediatric cancer
  • Experience a traumatic injury
  • Undergo a transplant
