Healthcare costs will continue to rise along with the utilization of services. We offer a valuable service to consumers in helping them understand the options available to them before and after they need it.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) June 06, 2011
Putnam Health Advocates, a leader in patient advocacy services and a business of Putnam Healthcare Services, LLC announced today that they have completed their acquisition of OLH Holdings, LLC dba AskMyAdvocate.com and MyCareAdvocates.com and launched their new consumer web site, http://www.putnamhealthadvocates.com.
As a provider of advocacy services for the last 10 years, this acquisition allows Putnam to significantly expand their service line to provide healthcare consumers with access to a comprehensive suite of patient advocacy services that, until now, have not been readily available. Expanding on their history in healthcare, successfully negotiating client savings on medical bills through a proactive audit process with providers and payers, Putnam Health Advocates assists consumers with challenges in the following service areas: Medical Billing Disputes, Insurance Denial Appeals, Prescription Drug Pricing Comparison, Diagnosis Research, My Health Plan, Provider Referrals, Provider Fee Negotiating, Case and Care Management, Nursing Home Research and Assisted Living Coordination.
Offering free memberships allows consumers access to complimentary and discounted pricing on the aforementioned services along with a bi-monthly newsletter, Healthcare-Empowered. The Company's services are provided to clients on an as-needed basis by professional Case Advocates that include RN’s, geriatric case managers, certified coders, billers, insurance and benefits specialists as well as toll free access to the Putnam Health Advocates member care service team. Putnam Health Advocates services are also offered as a package to employers who want to compliment their benefits program, attorneys who need medical bill audit and insurance agents who want to offer additional benefits to their customers.
“Although healthcare reform has offered some relief to consumers, the costs will continue to rise along with the utilization of services,” says Anna Inglett, President, Putnam Health Advocates. “As a result, consumers are confused and don’t understand how to navigate through this maze; coupled with aging baby boomers and the “sandwich generation” the challenges are immense. “We believe we offer a valuable service to healthcare consumers in helping them understand all of the options available to them and offer them directions and solutions when challenges do arise.”
