When you have a lot of health issues, it feels like you are forever fighting the insurance office and billing offices; and constantly trying to balance what the insurance benefits cover vs your specific healthcare needs- all while managing poor health. Sometimes, it just becomes too much. That is where a patient advocate is so beneficial and Ms. Paula Miller with Longboat Health Advocates is a caring and powerful patient advocate to have on your side. During a benefits dispute, when I was on ‘frustration overload’, Ms. Miller was able to step in and work with my provider and insurance company to determine what my rights were and to establish a plan forward for me. She clearly explained the entire situation, including my rights as a patient, my insurance benefits and the options available to me. Ms. Miller is passionate about ensuring that her clients get the best care to which they are entitled. It is clear that her years in the health field have added to her understanding of what patients need, how to speak the language of healthcare professionals, and how to unravel the intricacies of public and private health insurances.
