Advocate Fees & Costs 

What will a private, independent health care advocate charge you for services?

When you request help from an independent, professional advocate, you should expect the advocate to charge you for the services he or she performs on your behalf.  Health insurance does not ordinarily cover the cost of health care advocate fees, although some employers may assist with payment.

The cost will depend on the advocacy services that is performed.
