PATIENT ADVOCATE INFORMATION - Tuesday, January 18, 2011 8:35 AM
The National Patient Advocate Foundation is a policy office located in Washington DC.  The companion organization, Patient Advocate Foundation, is a direct patient services organization that provides management to patients free of charge.  The trained case managers assist with medical debt crisis, job retention, insurance denials and many other issues.  Their website is www.patientadvocate.org
 
 This is from some research I did a while back seeking information for a Sister that was having trouble with her employer/insurance.  I just came across the paper that had all the info and wanted to post in case it would be of help to anyone.
The contact at that time was
Amy Boivin  (don't know if she is still there)
Director of Government Affairs   
 National Patient Advocate Foundation

I also highly recommend Livestrong's SurvivorCare program, which partners with the PAF and provides you with a case worker for several different areas of concern that cancer survivors have.
