Who Is Your Disability Advocate?
Monday, January 18th, 2010
Trying to advocate for yourself once you’ve been admitted to a hospital is practically impossible. If you are lucky enough to have a family member who knows the ins and outs of hospitals and health insurance, you can focus on getting better. If you don’t, the hospital social worker will go toe-to-toe on your behalf with hospital staff, administration, insurance companies, etc. They are experienced and knowledgeable, and it’s their job to help you at a time when you cannot help yourself.
The same holds true for a sick or injured person with a disability insurance claim who is not getting the right treatment from the disability insurance company.
You need to focus on getting better and taking care of yourself. Your advocate should be an attorney who will fight for you, who has the experience, knowledge and the aggressiveness required to do battle with a large company that simply doesn’t care.
