Discover Health Advocacy: Comparing medical costs

We built our company, Health Advocate, Inc., to help people navigate the complex healthcare system and to provide them answers when they need them the most. Here is an example of how we have helped a member with a healthcare solution.

Problem: Comparing medical costs

Kelly’s child needed tubes in her ears because of repeated ear infections. She wanted to compare costs for this procedure and also wanted an estimate of what she could expect to pay.

Solution: Health Advocate researched cost estimates for this procedure in her area; provided a detailed report listing low, likely, and high costs; and explained what her out-of-pocket costs we likely to be. This resulted in a potential savings of more than $7,000.
