NAHC has partner with two leading Healthcare Advocacy groups, Healthcare Advocates and The Karis Group. Both offer our members concierge services, so members do not have to deal with their healthcare questions and issues alone.
Advocates often act as a personal healthcare guide, advising on more complex healthcare decisions that might involve physician specialists or surgical procedures as well as lowering medical costs.
Healthcare Advocacy is a newer discipline in the healthcare field that has evolved out of the need for patients and healthcare customers to better enable them to navigate the increasingly complex healthcare world, medical insurance and claims, and patient rights. NAHC has partnered with two groups to provide patient advocacy services to our Members, Healthcare Advocates and The Karis Group.
HealthCare Advocates combines the strengths of its experts on staff to offer members such valuable services as medical research, insurance dispute resolution, bills and forms consolidation services, health counselors and more. As a Member of NAHC, when you have medical questions, insurance disputes, questions about coverage, even if you've been denied access for a certain medical procedure, HealthCare Advocates can help.
Healthcare Advocates has also put together a unique package of information that covers everything from choosing the best healthcare plan to preparing for your hospitalization to your rights as a patient. In addition, they have negotiated special discounts for our members to receive health-related books and other medical publications. Working as a team, HealthCare Advocates' professionals see to it that your health insurance works the way it's supposed to. They will work closely with you and your healthcare insurance company to resolve issues quickly. What's more, you'll be able to tap into the wealth of knowledge and experience of the HealthCare Advocates group through several services offered as part of HealthCare Advocates' membership.

Our partner, The Karis Group is built on the vision to make healthcare work. The Karis Group’s products and services help our Members tackle the stress and expense of the healthcare world today.

The Karis360 program offers three services that will help our Members more readily access the healthcare they need, save money on surgical procedures, and better be able to deal with medical bills.
Healthcare Navigator: With its concierge services, NAHC Members through the Karis Group don’t have to deal with their healthcare questions and issues alone. Karis360 Advisors will assist Members with healthcare needs including finding doctors and healthcare facilities in their area, obtaining best available pricing for procedures and prescriptions and we can even schedule appointments. With Healthcare Navigator, our Members will save time and money.

With Karis360, NAHC Members have access to an experienced advisor who will research up to five surgical facilities in the Member’s designated area to get the best available price, quality, physician privileges and availability for non-emergency procedures. With this information, Members can make an informed, money-saving decision.
Bill Negotiator: With Karis360, NAHC Members are given a dedicated patient advocate who works directly with their healthcare providers to help reduce their out-of-pocket medical bills. Patient advocates can help lower these medical costs to something more manageable for our Members.
