MN Advocates for Patients of Rogers is celebrating its first anniversary.
MN Advocates for Patients is a group of professionals from the medical and insurance industry that provides education, research, and support for individuals facing complex medical situations.
The company was started one year ago by Kiki Rogers, an insurance specialist and previous medical assistant. Rogers said they encounter patients who made choices about their healthcare or insurance because they felt they had no options. Her goal is to provide assistance up front for individuals and families so they feel informed and empowered in their healthcare journey.
MN Advocates for Patients has now a team of eight independent advocates, located throughout the Twin Cities and St. Cloud areas. The advocates have a team approach to serving their clients since they come from various backgrounds and specialties to include a certified Gerontologist that specializes in senior needs, Advanced Care Planning Facilitator, senior housing and navigation specialists, and several insurance experts.
MN Advocates for Patients are MNSure partners, providing MNSure navigation assistance as well. “We advocate for the client, so we are independent of any particular hospital, medical group, or insurance provide,” Rogers said.
