MEDWISE INSURANCE ADVOCACY FOUNDER ADRIA GROSS: FEATURED SPEAKER AT 92ND ST Y IN NEW YORK CITY IN MARCH
Among Adria Gross’ many speaking engagements to better inform the public about the confusing subject of medical billing, she was distinguished as the featured speaker on the March 25 “To Your Health” series of the 92nd St. Y. presenting “Seven Ways to Cut Your Medical Bills”.
The audience response was overwhelmingly appreciative of the very important information presented, and left feeling empowered and educated on how to navigate the health care system and advocate for themselves and others.
Typical of attendee accolades, C. McCarthy of Jackson Heights, NY commented “Adria shared some important tips about demystifying medical billing—and what we can do to “break the codes” and save money! Her knowledge, skills, personal energy, passion and humor “won” our hearts and increased our ability to be our own advocate’.
Gross has nearly 25 years of experience in the insurance field and has helped clients recoups over one million dollars in medical bills and expenses since starting her company in 2012.
The presentation, “Diagnosing and Decoding Your Medical Bills” covered topics such as :
The Importance of knowing patient rights
Understanding your health insurance policy
Comparing prices and procedures
Ascertaining whether procedures are necessary
Options for uninsured and underinsured patients
Deciphering procedure codes
Ways to save on medications
Adria was motivated to develop her company recognizing the need to help individuals through action and education as they conquer the world of health care.
In addition, Gross has decades of personal experience dealing with explanation of benefits, diagnosis and procedure codes, and mounting medical bills as a sufferer of epilepsy.
“While I am grateful that a major surgical procedure put an end to my condition, deciphering and determining the accuracy of the bills was a nightmare.
My professional experience, and the spiraling costs and confusions in health care, induced me to offer my services,” Adria Gross commented.
