In June 2009, my doctor recommended that I have some xrays taken at a local
hospital because I was having joint pain. I naively assumed my insurance company
would pay for the xrays. Shortly thereafter, I received a bill from the hospital for
$1817.50 for the 3 xrays. I contacted my insurance company, and appealed their decision
several times, but each time payment was denied. In the interim, I paid $500.00 of
the $1817.50 bill to the hospital. One night, as I was searching online, I found
Health Care Advocates' website. In Sept. 2009, I contacted Kevin Flynn, who said
that he could help me. I corresponded and spoke with Health Care Advocates for the
next three months, as they continued their interaction with the insurance company. I
did my best to keep the faith, but was still concerned whether or not Health Care
Advocates could actually get the amount I owed the hospital reduced, if at all
In January 2010, I was thrilled to received a call and email from Health Care Advocates, stating that I now only owed the hospital $65.88 of the remaining $1317.50 xray bill!
I am thankful that God answered my prayer, and that Health Care Advocates was successful in their efforts on my behalf.
I hope that they continue to help many other people for years to come.
