I know many of you have personal experience with someone who greatly needs assistance due to job loss, insurance issues or drug costs. It is those of us who, when we “hear” of names or situations can help by referring persons to the National Patient Advocate Foundation. Last month I announced that I became the Colorado SPL (state policy liaison) for the National Patient Advocate Foundation http://www.patientadvocate.org, (800) 532-5274, or emails to the address of firstname.lastname@example.org. I will soon be posting information on my website regarding who is an appropriate referral for assistance. Check back soon.
