Medical Cost Advocate’s services enable clients to save time, reduce cost and better navigate the health care system.

Negotiation and Payment Plans

Consumers have seen a dramatic increase in their share of out-of-pocket health care costs and medical bills. Insured and uninsured consumers are subject to ever increasing financial burdens in the form of direct physician/hospital bills, co-insurance, deductibles and out-of-network charges.

Consumers frequently over pay for health care because:
  • They do not have the knowledge required to reduce charges
  • They do not have the time to become an expert in health care
  • They are reluctant to challenge their health care provider

Until now, consumers have not had a trusted partner to lower their medical costs. You and your family deserve an advocate.

Medical Cost Advocate provides health care cost reduction solutions to benefit consumer and employee payers. Medical Cost Advocate is the expert source to validate billing accuracy, negotiate medical bills and regain control over your health care costs.We can negotiate your medical bills after services have been performed or reduce your procedure price before services are performed.

Many consumers have large bills they cannot afford to pay even if they are reduced through negotiation or they have in-network bills that providers refuse to lower through negotiation. In either case, you may elect to have your advocate negotiate a payment plan to stretch your payment out over time. Now you may select a payment plan as a service option when you enter your medical bill.
