Putnam Health Advocates Launches Membership Program To Help Consumers Navigate The Complexities Of Their Healthcare.
My Care Advocates membership program gives consumers 24/7 access to a personal health advocate by offering free and discounted services.
Putnam Health Advocates announced today that they have rolled out a consumer membership program built around an annual fee that offers free and discounted health advocacy services.
My Care Advocates puts professional support in the hands of consumers quickly, conveniently and with a manageable cost to them. The goal is to help them resolve their problems early on, before they get worse.

“At Putnam Health Advocates, we do three things exceptionally well; we remove barriers that impede access to care; coordinate, collaborate and manage needed resources; and, we contain the costs of care. Our services and solutions are focused on billing and insurance issues, care management, elder care, aid and assistance, provider communication, cancer care navigation; complex case management issues, Telehealth and, much more. Offering this program ensures consumers a rapid response to problems and issues that need solutions before they become bigger.” Download the App, Putnam Health Advocates for a savings coupon or, visit www.putnamhealthadvocates.com/my-care-advocates to learn more.
Putnam Health Advocates Launches New Service, GoCreditFile To Help Consumers Dispute And Resolve Medical Debt Reported To The Credit Bureaus
Putnam Health Advocates announced today that they have added another component to their growing line of health advocacy services.
“Medical debt continues to weigh down consumer credit files and often times it was reported in error.” says Anna Inglett, CEO of Putnam Health Advocates.
“Unfortunately, our medical billing system and insurance reimbursement processes continue to create confusion for consumers and, with high deductible/co-insurance plans, they will continue to be challenged in trying to figure them out. Providers want to be paid as soon as possible and pass the responsibility for doing so onto the consumer. Often times, it can take hours to figure out who paid who and how much. Failure to do so can send the account to collections and the process starts all over again. We can resolve these issues quickly and if they have been reported to the credit bureaus, manage the payment or removal process from the file.”
Our initial consultation is always complimentary.

Tampa, FL – Putnam Health Advocates announced today the rollout of their Re-Admission Management Strategy or READY!℠ suite of services for hospitals and payers.
“Utilizing Population Health Management software to identify current and future at-risk patients and, deploying “boots on the ground” Care Management teams with access to Tele-health and Wellness technology, READY!℠ is designed to close the inherent gaps that prevent patients from achieving optimal outcomes pre and post discharge” says Anna Inglett, CCM – CEO of Putnam Health Advocates.
“We’ve worked very hard to bring the elements together under one umbrella to ensure that the patient is ready at discharge and has access to the tools and resources they need for continued success, post-discharge. For hospitals, our reporting capabilities provide support of efforts at 30-60-90 days post-discharge; thereby, minimizing or eliminating reimbursement penalties from payers should the patient re-admit.”
