- 1 in 3 people was in a family experiencing the financial burden of medical care.
- 1 in 5 people was in a family having problems paying medical bills.
- 1 in 4 people was in a family paying medical bills over time.
- 1 in 10 people was in a family that had incurred medical bills that they were unable to pay at all.

What Health Proponent does
Were you hit with a large hospital bill that you can’t afford? Are there errors on your hospital bill, or did your claim get denied? Need help finding a medical or dental provider? Or estimating costs of a treatment or procedure? Want help understanding or filling out paperwork? Do you need a second opinion? Health Proponent can help with these things and more.
Health Proponent’s driving force is a team of Personal Health Advocates. You will be assigned your own Personal Health Advocate (PHA), who is typically a registered nurse supported by medical directors or a highly trained benefits and claims specialist. When you call Health Proponent, the PHA will listen to you, evaluate your issue, and will be your advocate while working to resolve the problem. You’ll get a real person for real help—no endless phone transfers or aggravating recorded messages.
Your PHA can help save you money with Medical Bill Saver, which can potentially save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. If you have an uncovered medical or dental bill of at least $400, your PHA can attempt to negotiate that bill at no up-front cost to you. If your PHA successfully reduces the cost of that bill, Health Proponent will share in 25% of the savings.
Your PHA can also work on a variety of cases for you ($99 per case). Your PHA can save you time, stress, and money by tackling denied insurance claims, scheduling appointments with hard-to-reach specialists, finding eldercare services for you or a loved one, addressing medical billing errors, securing second opinions, clarifying coverage plans, and obtaining cost estimates.
