Member story: Helping Tim with his finances and marriage

Every day, Health Advocate helps people across the country improve their health, reduce their healthcare costs, meet health and wellness goals, and so much more. Here’s the story of one member, Tim, and how Health Advocate helped him deal with financial issues that were affecting his marriage.

The problem:

Due to the loss of his wife’s income and poor money management skills, Tim’s financial debt was growing quickly…and the strain was affecting his marriage and job performance.

How Health Advocate helped:

Tim called Health Advocate and spoke to a Licensed Professional Counselor. His counselor:

  • Set up couples’ counseling sessions to discuss strategies to help Jim and his wife communicate more effectively about finances
  • Suggested stress management techniques
  • Connected Tim with a financial specialist for a free consultation
  • Put Tim in contact with a professional negotiator for help with a large, uncovered medical bill
