Patient Advocate/Nurse Navigator
“Nurse Navigators Enhancing The Group Medical Investment”
Employers and their workers are making ever increasing investments in company Group Medical Programs. Unfortunately, these stakeholders are not realizing the maximum return on this investment. OMCA’s Patient Advocate Program can help your employees become better consumers and maximize this investment.
To most employees, the bureaucratic maze of health care access, insurance reimbursements, co-pays and networks is daunting at best. OMCA’s Patient Advocate Program uses specialty trained clinical staff to assist employers and employees navigate the complex world of health insurance. We educate participants on making the most of their plan, and ensure that employers obtain the greatest return on their health care investment.
In a perfect world, insurance terms/regulations would be simple. Company Human Resource Departments would be fully staffed, Agency customer Service representatives would have free time to consult, physician offices would be ready accessible, and medical claims adjusters would not be outsourced overseas. In this utopia, employees and plan sponsors would have a myriad of resources to call upon. However, since this help is not available, many carriers, self-funded employers and TPA’s have called upon OMCA to institute a Patient Advocate / Nurse Navigator Program as the missing support structure.
