Today I came across Advance Medical – Expert Medical Opinion, an innovative healthcare product that can be purchased by employers, for employees, or individually. Basically, Advance Medical connects people who have complex medical conditions to expert physician case managers who guide patients through treatment, offer expert advice, and help coordinate heathcare among the various different physicians that are involved with treatment.
Having been in the health insurance business for more than 15 years, I can certainly see the value in this service. There’s nothing worse than trying to navigate the healthcare system when you are at your most vulnerable. It appears that this service can lift a huge burden from the shoulders of those who need it most. Having another set of eyes on your case could be a lifesaver!
