Testimonials
MedWise Insurance Advocacy
To whom it may concern,

As I was seeking assistance with care regarding insurance issues and medical cost negotiations if this were to become necessary, I turned to the internet. I found Medwise Insurance Advocacy, Inc. and was immediately impressed. It was everything I was looking for when I started my search. I called the number immediately and Adria Gross the owner answered her phone and listened to the problems I had been encountering with the insurance company and phone calls due to claims not being paid. She was very empathetic and immediately took a valued interest in the issues shared. I knew that minute I would hire her to assist with my insurance issues.

I sent the necessary information to help Adria’s company to assist me with my bills, and insurance information. Once the information sent was reviewed, I received a phone call from Adria which lasted four hours. Together we called all of the relevant hospitals, clinics, and various small physician groups. We then called the insurance company and found the information sent to them had been enough to reverse their denial of coverage due to a pre-existing clause and the claims will be paid as of February 1, 2014. After hearing the information I was still unclear to the meaning shared by the customer service representative. Having Adria on the phone with me to explain the information was invaluable.

Adria has been a godsend to me as I have attempted to traverse through the difficult challenges of the insurance company and medical facilities requiring payment. It is obvious Adria truly has a heart for those families and individuals who are denied coverage and then get the run around from insurance companies. She also has the gracious spirit to help others. I have the utmost confidence in and admiration for Adria. In this day and time it is rare to find one who is more dedicated and motivated toward serving others.
