As a Patient Advocate, You May Want to Become a GPA If . . .

  • You are passionate about advocacy and providing your patients with expert guidance, options and solutions to their healthcare challenges.
  • You are frustrated with the current healthcare system and the limitations it currently places on you and your patients.
  • You realize there ARE viable options for your patients outside the borders of your country and you’d like to learn more.
  • You have patients that are seeking cosmetic and dental procedures at a reasonable price that you have not had the ability to reach out to and provide an affordable solution.
  • You have patients that could benefit from procedures and therapies perhaps not yet approved in your country but proven to be viable options for treatment and you’d like to learn about them and be able to confidently offer them.
  • You are based in a city/region that has an excellent hospital already attracting “medical tourists” both domestic and international, and you’d like to offer your services to these patients.
  • You are a case manager or work with an insurance company that is or has considered international medical tourism for the savings it can provide but you have not known how to help guarantee the savings (keep patient’s care on budget and minimize complications) and secure trustworthy patient representation and support in the destination country.
  • You recognize the growing trend and need for lower cost alternatives to care that the current healthcare model requires and you want to be prepared to guide your patients.
  • You are passionate enough about Patient Advocacy to want to help encourage its adoption on a global scale.
  • You understand the importance of medically appropriate Aftercare and Care Continuity and want to help insure your patient can have access to it AND afford it!
  • You want to provide your patient with, not just a procedure or therapy, but an actual “experience.”
  • You have patients, or could reach out to such patients, that are interested in alternative therapies, wellness treatments, Ayurvedic and natural medicine, even “baby boomers” looking for retirement options abroad with access to excellent healthcare.
  • You’d like a platform that helps you ethically market your expertise and highlight your experience to potential patients looking for help and representation as they explore their healthcare options at home and abroad.
