upcoming medical debt webinar

On May 24th at 3pm EST, The SAMFund for Young Adult Survivors of Cancer will partner with Jeff Newbauer, a health care consultant with more than 28 years senior management experience, to host a free webinar titled Moving Forward with your Financial Health: Tips and Strategies for Reducing Medical Debt.

In its description of the webinar, SAMFund says: Dealing with medical debt can be overwhelming. Complicated insurance programs and opaque physician/hospital billing practices serve only to exacerbate an already difficult situation for young adults. Sixty-two percent of household bankruptcies are due to overwhelming medical debt and of the most financially devastating diseases, cancer reigns supreme. In this Webinar, we will show you strategies to help manage your health care bills. Specifically, we will show you how to:

1. Effectively communicate with medical billers
2. Access provider-based financial assistance
3. Demonstrate financial hardship; and
4. Negotiate fair settlements and payment plans with health care providers.
