Private, independent advocates work for you and are not paid by an insurance company or hospital. The healthcare system can be challenging and overwhelming, and sometimes scary and confusing. Having an experienced advocate means you have someone on your side, focused on your healthcare needs, watching out for you.
StacyCares Oklahoma offers a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation to determine if we can help you. After that, non-emergency services begin with an initial Assessment Consultation ($200) to determine what services are needed. Our fees vary based on the individual needs of each client and the time needed to provide the services. Some clients are charged hourly, others a flat rate. Services require a signed agreement and prepayment.
In most cases, private advocacy services are not covered by insurance. This means patients or their families pay for our services out of pocket, and that’s a good thing! This means your advocate is not under pressure from your insurance company, and can focus on your needs.
If you are a caregiver, friend, or loved one who needs guidance or support to advocate for a person you are concerned about, we can work directly with you.
All services are pre-paid. You are billed and pay through PayPal.
