Adria Gross, FIPC, president of MedWise Insurance Advocacy, has been on both sides—make that three sides—of the health insurance fence. She was a long-time epilepsy sufferer in her youth and had a long career working for a major insurance carrier, responsible for vetting and very often denying claims. Now she is a medical insurance advocate for patients who are fighting for the medical insurance coverage and reimbursements they are entitled to. She also co-authored “Solved! Curing Your Medical Insurance Problems” with Douglas Winslow Cooper, Ph.D.; the book was released on Amazon last September and has now been accepted on the Jewish Book Council’s list of must-reads.
As an author on the Jewish Book Council website, Gross is also a member of the organization’s speakers bureau. She will speak next year at the Jewish Federation of Orange County in New York and at the Jewish Community Center in Bridgewater, N.J., and is discussing other possible speaking engagements on both the East Coast and West Coast. All proceeds from the sale of books at these engagements will be donated to the non-profit organizations. In addition to synagogues, Jewish organizations and other non-profits, Gross is also available to speak to corporate heads and company employees about how to tackle insurance claim issues and alleviate surprise charges or overcharges by healthcare facilities and providers.
“Believe me, I know the ins and outs of the health insurance system. I went from being a patient with medical bills to an insurance professional who denied medical claims. I’m so gratified that I can use my prior experience to help patients deal effectively with their denied, overcharged, out-of-network, and ignored claims.”
Since founding MedWise Insurance Advocacy in 2012, Gross has helped clients recoup millions of dollars of previously unreimbursed claims from insurance companies as well as from corrected, reduced charges from medical practitioners and facilities. She wrote her book in order to share her expertise with a wider audience, and arm patients with the knowledge they need to fight unfair claim denials.
“Solved! Curing Your Medical Insurance Problems” offers helpful insights into how patients can spot overcharges by medical providers and underpayments or incorrect denials by their health insurers. It is filled with tips on how to reduce the odds that a health insurance claim will be rejected, and how to handle a rejection, and provides the knowledge that lay people need to successfully manage an erroneous billing situation or to appeal an unfavorable insurance reimbursement decision.
As for taking her expertise on the road, Gross said that, “I feel I can teach people so much about what to do when their claims are denied, out-of-network, overcharged and going nowhere. There is also so much to know these days, especially about the growing admitted inpatient vs. outpatient under observation situations; these are causing major problems for patients and their families, and my mission is to help save them from going bankrupt.”
