Who Needs Medical Consulting?

It seems as though with today’s internet and technology, there is a plethora of services and information available to those of us, fortunate enough to have a computer and internet access. This great tool is at our disposal 24/7, and opens a whole new world of possibilities to us. Not only does it allow us to research information, it also opens the door to many entrepreneurs to develop websites and services that save others time and money. I admire them for the ingenuity and perseverance to get the job done.

Take Advanced Medical Strategies, for instance. They offer medical consulting to medical professionals in need of financial information and advice, stemming from an underwriting or catastrophic medical claim. They are trained to deal with the legal side of insurance claims, thus leaving a medical professional free to continue to do what they do best. Not all medical claims stem from negligence of medical professionals.  Many of these claims actually stem from doctor not being paid their fee, from an insurance company. Since I was diagnosed with leukemia seven months ago, I have received several statements, from my insurance company, that have not reimbursed my doctor one penny for their services, yet state that the charges are not my responsibility to pay. It is very confusing and I can really understand how much medical consulting is needed. We live is a world full or red, blue, orange and even yellow tape and sometimes it takes a professional to sort through the forest to find the trees.
