Why Do You Need a Personal Health Advocate?

The U.S. healthcare system is an ever changing, evolving bureaucracy that is too often overwhelming and frustrating to individuals and families. There is a growing need for people to take a proactive role in managing their health care to prevent incomplete or improper care and proactively manage the financial burden of care. It is somewhat certain that if we do not manage our health, it will be managed for us, and too often without our best interest as a priority. The goal of Lifelong Wellness Advocates is to shift the priority balance back to the individual and the family by professionally and systematically managing the care process.
