About the Patient Advocacy Fund

Through generous donations, The Care Partner Project Patient Advocacy Fund provides grants to professional patient advocates for service to patients and families with limited resources or no insurance.

Armed with insider  knowledge of the health care system, Patient Advocates offer solutions and peace of mind for health care challenges and expense.

Here are just a few examples of how The Care Partner Patient Advocacy Fund has helped patients:

 

A transgender college student in Chicago, abandoned by his parents and left to live alone during Covid, was losing his sight to a rare eye disorder.  Our Advocate found a specialist with a sight-saving treatment for him.

A Detroit truck driver who lived in his cab  suffered a stroke and needed rehab. An Advocate  secured a spot for him at a residential facility covered by Medicaid and made sure his disability checks reached him there.

A homeless veteran in Austin had no ability to  access his VA benefits. Our Advocate, a vet herself, set him up with the VA and other social services to ensure transportation to all medical appointments in the future.

A young man in Florida, paralyzed by a stab wound, was Medicaid qualified for intensive rehab, which offered him the possibility of walking again. Despite treatment by five doctors over many months, none coordinated his rehab program. Our Advocate not only got him placed within one week but also made sure Medicaid covered and delivered essential medical supplies he desperately needed.

The Patient Advocacy Fund Gets Results … With Heart

After my diagnosis with a rare, disease, I was overwhelmed and confused. I wasn’t sure if my doctors were doing what I needed. An advocate reviewed my case and it was the best thing I’ve done! I am now much more confident regarding my treatment. My head has stopped spinning and I can sleep at night.

As an oncologist, I have found patient advocates to be very helpful in my patients’ care. They are there at every step, helping my patients deal with the day-to-day issues involved in treating cancer. They are a tremendous resource to patients.

When my father became ill it was a blessing to discover that patient advocates possess the same qualities that I’ve always associated with the very best of caregivers. Whether it was helping to guide my mother through the complexities of my father’s hospitalization or helping her to select the best hospice facility, their expertise, compassion and kindness were an invaluable comfort to our entire family.

I was fighting a $13,500 bill for a medication delivered to us even though my wife’s prescription had been cancelled by her doctor. It went to collections and we were getting terrible calls at home. My wife has MS and the stress was making it worse.  We are so grateful to the patient advocate who untangled the pharmacy and insurance system messes that caused the error. Our bill was erased completely. We are blessed by her help.
