Any advantage to allowing insurance company to assign a rn to manage one's ongoing medical care and decisions?

Yes: If well trained, caring, thoughtful, & beholden to his/her expertise can bring doctor's concerns to insurance company & get case moved along.

In any case the nurse enlarges target for the doctor's advocacy. So yes, get one. ...Read more
