Meet Jan Stone
You can always negotiate medical bills.
If you don’t have insurance, ask your health care provider upfront
what services you’ll be charged for.
Your healthcare advocate, in her own words.
“I’ve seen a lot. After working for twenty years in select professional healthcare settings, I came to understand that dealing with the system could become as difficult a burden to bear as whatever ailment brought you there in the first place. I realized what I’ve learned can help other patients, and allow them to focus on getting well. I know what to immediately look for in a good doctor, how clinics and hospitals work in the exam room and the business office. I also know the ins and outs of insurance companies. My deep understanding of healthcare, as well as hands-on experience in preventive care and disease management has given me a coveted insider’s view. I can now apply this knowledge to those needing guidance.” ~Jan Stone
