Additionally, in many households women are considered the Chief Wellness Officer of their family and are most often called upon to manage the family health issues. These issues can often be taken care of quickly if the right resources are available to your organization.
Health Advocacy comes in many forms, including medical bill review and audit, insurance denials and appeals, case management, caregiver facilitation and more. Not only does our Employee Advocacy Services provide virtual resource support for employee family health matters, our partnerships with some of the leading Employee Assistance Program (EAP) providers offers additional services in behavioral and mental health matters.
