Yes, we charge an hourly fee for our services. We also work on a retainer basis for particular clients/cases.
It depends. When you refer a patient, the patient will pay for our services. Sometimes, family members, organizations and friends pay for our services. If you directly contract with us to help with clinical issues (training, consultations, or other professional services for your practice such as coordination of benefits, appealing denied claims, overcoming prescription restrictions, etc.) you will pay for our services.
We work closely with your case managers, patient navigators, social workers, and all other staff to coordinate next steps, identify resources and ensure patient needs are met.
Yes. We work with new to Medicare clients all year. Unlike agents we do not sell or receive commission from insurance companies or financial products. You can expect unbiased help.

Though patient assistance programs and foundations will often help, they may have restrictions if the patient has insurance coverage. We can look for other options.
We find ways to help not only with Medicare clients but others with coverage outside Medicare by exploring options for additional assistance.

Patients admitted as outpatients or under observation are only covered under Medicare Part B, which means outpatient medications are not covered. Hospital pharmacies do not contract with Medicare Part D plans. Under these circumstances medication bills need to be submitted to the patient's Medicare Part D plan for reimbursement.
Yes. We bill at an hourly rate. However, we usually can find our fee in the savings we provide our clients.
