Country Music Star Troy Gentry Partners With National Non-Profit Patient Advocate Foundation to Spread the Message About Challenges to Healthcare Access for Insured and Uninsured Americans
Date:3/17/2008

he healthcare coverage you need to survive. Troy was so affected by his mother's experience that he has vowed to help others who may be facing obstacles to get the healthcare they need.

"We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Troy Gentry on this public service announcement that we hope will reach thousands of patients who are in need of help and not yet aware of PAF's free services," said Nancy Davenport-Ennis, founder, president and CEO of PAF. "We look forward to continuing to work with Troy on educating people about how to get this all-important assistance in accessing their medical care."

Over the past 12 years, PAF's expert case managers and medical professionals have helped nearly 20 million patients gain access to healthcare when denied coverage by their insurance provider. In 2007, more than 6.8 million people from all 50 states contacted PAF for information -- approximately 44,600 of those requests requiring direct, sustained mediation from PAF. Of those 44,600 cases, 76 percent of the patients had some form of insurance, whether it was private healthcare, Medicare or Medicaid.

"Unfortunately, it is a common misconception in America that just because you have health insurance, you will get the medications and medical care that you need -- particularly when faced with a life-threatening, debilitating or catastrophic health crisis," said Davenport-Ennis. "We have seen entirely too many patients and family members struggle with rejected claims, denials based on pre-existing conditions and additional insurance coverage challenges that can lead to life-or-death delays in treatment. It's important to get the word out to these patients that PAF is here to fight on their behalf."
