WHAT WE NEGOTIATE

Medical Cost Advocate will negotiate any medical bill that you receive for anyone in your family. It doesn’t matter if you are insured or uninsured, if the procedure is covered or not covered, or if the provider is in network or out-of-network. We can negotiate full charges and balance bills, as well as bills you will ultimately send to your insurer to apply against deductibles and co-insurance. The bill must simply exceed $300.

Medical Cost Advocate is very effective for uninsured consumers. Our services can enable uninsured consumers to realize the same discounts typically obtained through large insurance carriers. Medical Cost Advocate can also negotiate items that fall outside of your insurance coverage:

  • Uninsured claims
  • Non-covered procedures – Procedures not covered by your insurance
  • Partially paid bills, balance bills and excess charges
  • Bills applied to co-insurance and deductibles

You should send your bills to Medical Cost Advocate before you apply them against your Insurance, Flexible Spending Account (FSA), Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) to ensure your cost savings and returns are maximized.
