Level 2 - Proactive Advocacy Plan

Who Is It For:

This level of service is designed for people with routine or low-urgency healthcare needs.

Proactively establishing a relationship with an advocate, when things are calm and your healthcare is routine, can prove beneficial if (or when) a more serious or complex health situation arises.

Experienced advocates serve as a sounding board for questions or concerns that may arise and can help guide you through options or point you to valuable resources and referrals. You will likely receive faster and more efficient healthcare if/when you encounter a bump in the road.

Trying to recall a long list of medications or every detail of your past medical history, when the unexpected arises and your not at your best, can be difficult. Your advocate will be able to communicate accurate and well organized information to providers when it's needed most and this is likely to help you achieve faster diagnoses and treatment.

These services are best for, but not limited to people who:

  • need some guidance and direction, but not intensive support and oversight. 
  • are working w/ multiple specialists and are seeking continuity of care
  • need assistance establishing a relationship or communicating with a physician or specialist
  • would like to be more prepared for a serious or emergent healthcare situation
  • are caregivers who want to feel supported and more confident in making decisions for their loved one
  • would like to learn how to optimize their health 
  • are health conscious and proactive in their healthcare
