SAN RAMON, Calif., March 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Being respectfully assertive is probably good for your health. But what about being assertive about your health?  More specifically about your healthcare? Healthcare and the associated costs and paperwork can be very confusing. For example, tests and treatment costs can vary widely by region, healthcare provider, and health insurance carrier. Financial Education Benefits Center (FEBC), a membership benefits company, is offering a health advocacy service as a benefit to members of multiple plan levels in order to help them with the administrative side of healthcare.

"Making sense of your medical bills or trying to coordinate your treatments between different doctors can be a massive headache," said Jennifer Martinez, Manager at FEBC. "With a professional helping you out, it could be a big relief."

Many individuals have a hard time advocating for themselves, asking for what they want, or inquiring further when they are confused. The health advocacy benefit puts a trained professional at the disposal of FEBC members who may need help dealing with their healthcare coordination. FEBC members who use the health advocacy benefit can call a number and speak to a healthcare industry professional about coordinating care, analyzing medical bills, and non-urgent health questions.

This advocacy service is about better outcomes, including saving money. The assistance with medical bills can be used if an FEBC member receives out-of-pocket medical charges above a certain amount. Advocates helping with medical bills will review a member's bills to identify any errors in the bill and also negotiate charges from the provider for possible savings. The membership benefit is not insurance, but rather an advocacy service.

This advocacy service is part of a bigger package of health-related benefits that FEBC members of different plans levels can enjoy. With a variety of benefits that address both physical and mental health, promoting wellness is at the core of this new suite of benefits.

"Individuals may be afraid to ask for help, but the truth is our healthcare system can be confusing," said Martinez. "This health advocacy benefit is about getting help that may be very much needed."
