0220-1309GAI don't I'm not being listened to. I believe I have a hard to diagnose problem. Doctors aren't listening or even preforming the simple test to prove or disprove my belief or trying to pass the buck off to the next doctor. Meanwhile, symptoms are changing.

I need someone to come on and have my back make sure I'm not going in alone. Advocate with me while I self advocate. I'm getting tired.

1911-1236MELab bill recieved 10 months after services were provided. The company never submitted this bill to the insurance company who said they would deny the claim if it was submitted now. WE were told by our provider that the charges were ridiculously high and not to pay the invoice.

Advise us on how to proceed with this situation. The Lab was bought out and the new company has many billing problems. Another of my providers has had similar issues with this new company. We really need the help of someone with experience navigating this mess.

1911-1235VTI am seeking advocacy for my sister-in-law who has been ill and undiagnosed for over 2 years. I live 2 hours away and can only provide limited support. I am seeking patient advocates in the Burlington area who I might talk with to discuss this case.

Need an advocate to negotiate the complex UVM Medical system and providers and find the best resources to get her a diagnosis and treatment plan.
