Some employers provide a health advocate, as part of the benefits plans or separate from the benefits plans, to help employees with their benefits:
- Find the right doctors, dentists, specialist and other providers
- Schedule appointments, arrange for special treatments and tests
- Locate the right treatment facilities, clinical trials
- Answer questions about test results, treatments and medications
- Research and locate newest treatments, secure second opinions
- Help cut through insurance red tape
A health advocate can help explain employee benefits coverage and financial responsibility, whether a claim is approved or denied. Typically provided by a registered nurse (supported by medical directors, benefits and claim specialists), this service is less expensive than even my favorite group vision plan. Wellness programs such as these save money on direct healthcare costs, and also indirect costs that are born by the employer due to absenteeism and presenteeism.
