Patient Financial Advocate

About Mary

Driven by Alleviating Financial Concerns

The best part of my work as a Patient Financial Advocate at Valley Hospital is being able to reduce our patient’s financial concerns. I assist patients as they apply for Medicare, Medicaid,  Charity Care and various other types of insurance. My job also includes procuring funding from charitable foundations and working with pharmaceutical companies to provide co-pay assistance and free medication when available. It’s rewarding to know that I can offer a little relief and take some financial stress away from patients and their families during a difficult time.
