Being Your Own Healthcare Advocate

Thursday, March 11, 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET

As healthcare has become increasingly more complex, the ability to be an effective advocate for yourself and others has become more important. Navigating virtual and shortened doctors' visits, hospitalizations and myriad insurance considerations requires essential knowledge and skills. This webinar is designed to equip participants with the essential information needed to effectively advocate for your care and to identify resources to help ensure you receive the best possible care and support. Join Lorie Henry, Director, Member Advocate & Retirement and Financial Protection Programs at the Board of Pensions, to learn

  • essential considerations when choosing a healthcare provider;
  • how to prepare for office visits;
  • key questions to ask your healthcare provider;
  • advocacy resources available to you through the Benefits Plan; and
  • helpful suggestions for medical coverage.
