Your Advocacy / Care Management Practice During a Pandemic
Crisis Conversations: A podcast series focusing on services and business management during the coronavirus / COVID-19 crisis
(2) Providing Advocacy COST Services During a Pandemic
Join five currently practicing advocates (find them below) as they discuss:
- Anticipating financial / cost / billing problems that will result from this crisis
- There are always differences between the costs for insured vs uninsured patients. What additional challenges for these two groups will come about as a result of COVID-19?
- What changes or differences in cost issues will we see as a result of government mandates?
- How can advocates connect with you to help their clients, and what kinds of help can you provide?
- What differences might we see in the receipt of surprise bills or balance bills?
Resources mentioned during this podcast:
During the call, we discuss the possibility that the insurance exchanges might open to allow additional, uninsured patients to opt-in.
