Well-Advised

Well-Advised helps hospitals deliver appropriate patient access, supporting ideal clinical coverage while matching a patient’s financial abilities. Well-Advised provides an unbiased, confidential and free service that guides patients to their optimal Medicare coverage based on clinical needs and provider and financial preferences.

Overview

Well-Advised provides free and unbiased health education and resources to help patients and the community determine their optimal Medicare coverage based on individual preferences and priorities.

Medicare selection has traditionally been a complicated process, and unbiased support can be difficult to access. People are inundated with confusing Medicare plan promotions. There are thousands of coverage combinations, and most people using Medicare are not enrolled in their best option: They either do not have enough coverage, or they are paying too much for the coverage they do have.  To address these issues, Well-Advised developed an industry-leading technology that makes finding the optimal Medicare coverage for each individual scientific and simple. Well-Advised supports the patients in your community by providing access to this tool and to education resources that demystify the complexities of Medicare coverage.

All Well-Advised educational materials and tools are free to use. Their website, well-advised.com, includes a proven technology that, unlike other offerings, evaluates all available Medicare options from all insurance companies. The individual enters preferred doctors, hospitals, prescriptions, insurance and more. The resulting unbiased recommendation is, quite simply, the one that best fits the individual’s preferences, priorities and financial needs. When the optimal plan is recommended, the user can then easily enroll in Medicare, or if already enrolled, can change their existing Medicare coverage during the open-enrollment period. Well-Advised tracks the Medicare market and will alert the individual if a better option to meet their needs becomes available. All user information is private, confidential and secure. Anyone who uses the Well-Advised website will never be targeted by unsolicited or unwelcome calls or communication.

Well-Advised is able to support hospitals in optimizing appropriate patient access. The service assures optimal clinical coverage while matching to a patient’s financial abilities.

Webinar

HASC Executive Workshop — Optimizing Patient Access and Reducing Bad Debt

Noon – 1 p.m., Friday, Oct. 8

HASC recognizes the importance of optimizing patient access and ensuring Medicare eligible patients are enrolled in the plan that best meets their clinical and financial needs. Medicare decisions are confusing to our patients. A total of 94 percent of patients select a sub-optimal plan when they first enroll in Medicare, and 87 percent of people never change plans, despite changes in clinical conditions. This results in patients not receiving the care they need, in reimbursement not aligned with required procedures, and in unexpected out-of-pocket costs that are difficult to collect.

As traditional Medicare Open Enrollment begins in October, it is important to learn how you can best utilize this free, non-biased and confidential recommendation tool for your patients and community. Well-Advised is a trusted resource, and HASC is excited to provide you exclusive access to a targeted discussion for the benefit of your hospital.
