Next Caregivers Support Group to Discuss Financial Stress
September 25, 2007
The next meeting of the Caregivers Support Group will take place on Tuesday, October 2, from 12 noon to 1 p.m. in the Crosby Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital (FMH). The support group is for caregivers of family and friends with chronic illnesses, and focuses on caregivers who also work while providing care for their loved ones.
This month’s topic of discussion will be “Managing the Financial Stress of Medical Expenses” and will feature Alex Freeman, Patient Advocate and Supervisor of Self-Pay. He will discuss:
· How to get through the insurance maze and talk to a real person,
· Understanding the benefits of medical benefits,
· Requesting a case manager,
· Charitable care, and
· Handling collection agency calls.
The support group regularly convenes on the first Tuesday of each month. No appointment or registration is required and participants are welcome to bring a bag lunch.
