What is a Health Advocate?

A health advocate is a family member, friend, trusted coworker or hired professional who can ask questions, write down information and speak up for you to facilitate better understand with regard to your health issues and insurance in order for you to get the care and resources you need. Quality health care requires taking an active role in decisions and having someone who is another set of ears and eyes can provide a big advantage.
