I had the good fortune to speak with Ms. Gross on some insurance issues that were plaguing me, and she recommended that I buy her book. Thanks to Ms. Gross’ advice over both the phone and in print, I was able to successfully negotiate my unreasonable hospital bill down by a significant percent.

There is a lot of good, specific advice here, such as Medicare lookups for billing codes in your hospital bill, and healthcare specific negotiation tactics. And of course, any specific questions can always be addressed to Ms Gross online as well; I found her to be very open and helpful, and more so than other authors I’ve tried to contact.

The question is not “if'” you need this guide, it’s “when” you need this guide that becomes so obvious as you read through the information of what to look for, how and where to get answers to just about any medical billing issue.

Insurance claims and hospital bill can be misleading, inaccurate, esoteric, and confusing.

Doing battle with the data alone is an uphill struggle to just seek out simple fairness. This book, to the point, concise and well organized, begins to strip away the layers of complexity to solve medical insurance problems. It’s a good resource for knowing where to get information, file complaints, and get answers.

There’s information about what to look for and avoid prior to engaging medical services as well. Highly recommended for getting to the bottom of a particular medical insurance problem, and a handy resource for understanding what to do before medical services to protect against over charges and unfair practices.

This book doesn’t just save its readers their hard-earned dollars, it saves something even more precious – their peace of mind.

Adria is an outstanding patient advocate, and having this book on your bedstand is almost as good as having her at your side when you deal with the “puzzle palace” that we call the insurance industry. After I read this work, I made sure to meet with her personally. I can guarantee you – she is as authentic in person as she is between these pages. If you are anticipating dealing with a recalcitrant insurer, Solved! is essential to claiming and getting what your insurance will want to deny you.

If you are looking for guidance paying for your medical bills then read this book. The Health care industry is broken. Paying for and trying to use your Health insurance is also broken. There is is no CARE in Heath care any more. I highly recommend this book so you can read stories on how Adria has helped so many people deal with their grossly overcharged medical bill challenges. You will feel confident after reading this book because it is written by an expert who knows how to take on the Health care companies and insurance companies. I also contacted Adria after reading the book to solve my unexpected medical bills. Adria got back to me promptly, cared about helping me, and as a result I was able to reduce my three medical bills by 80%. I am glad I came across Solved: Curing your Medical Insurance problems and happy I had someone like Adria in my corner.

This book is amazing! I used the information in this book to help with figuring out if my mom was being ripped off by various doctors. This offers a step by step guide on how to deal with it. I used it to save over $5400 with just one phone call and reading some of the text to the person on the other end of the line. It only took one phone call.

There are tons of strategies, tips and tricks on how to deal with all the bills you get when it comes to healthcare.

In today’s day and age everyone needs this book with rising health care costs and you companies sending you more and more bills with many of them completely wrong or able to be reduced with simple strategies.

I highly recommend this book. It’s VERY good.

I did not know this amazing resource was available until we had a miserable experience. We had be dealing with a hospital claim for over a year and were not getting any resolutions. Thankfully we found Mrs. Gross! She is amazing. She was able to get our claim settled with a zero balance due.

This book is so informative. I have learned so much reading it and going through this experience with Mrs. Gross.

Mrs. Gross, I cannot express how thankful I am for your help with this medical claim. Thank you so much for your assistance, knowledge, persistence, as well as your encouragement and kindness. I am so grateful that God lead us to you. I am so glad there is someone like you who will fight for consumers who are being ran over by the insurance industry and dishonest medical facilities. You are the answer to my prayers!

During open enrollment, my friend signed up for medical coverage for $383/month with 0 deductible! My wife needed an affordable medical plan too. Since we didn’t qualify for an Obamacare subsidy, I called that company.

The representative asked my wife’s pre-existing conditions and income, then offered a similar plan like my friend. The plan had no income restrictions and seemed wonderful.

The representative she said she’s a licensed agent and explained that this plan was able to cover both routine and critical care with modest co-pays and 0 deductible because: (a) mental health and substance abuse coverage are excluded, and because (b) it works like the “group rate for private health plan at a large company”, but in this case, “the group is made-up of individuals like my wife”.

I said WOW and signed up! Nevertheless, I contacted MedWise to double check and play it safe.

Based upon advice from Adria Gross, I subsequently checked the details of the plan at the links that the Agent had sent me.

According to the Member Portal for this so-called insurance plan, the coverage had two primary modules, Vital Care Elite and Pivotal 20000:
+ Vital Care Elite plan provides health coverage for everyday non-emergency / non-chronic medical needs such as: wellness care, plus primary care doctor or urgent care visits. — That’s good, as informed by the agent
+ The Vital Care Elite plan utilizes the PHCS Network to facilitate care for both sickness and injury related medical needs. The PHCS Network is a national healthcare provider network that includes thousands of physicians, hospitals, and other outpatient care facilities. — That’s likewise good, as informed
+ “Vital Care Elite is not a major medical insurance plan.” — Hmm…
+ Vital Care Elite plan covers up to two, just TWO medical visits per year — Yikes!
+ Routine medical visits are covered 100% after the copay, up to the $150 limit — Yikes!
+ Pivotal 20000 plan will cover up to $5000 per year for critical care only — Yikes!

If I hadn’t read Adrias book and contacted Medwise, I would have been misled, since the Agent neglected to mention the last three points. The Plan’s office would not let me cancel prior to the start date of service. So, I called my credit card to dispute their initial charge.

Thanks to Adria’s knowledge and guidance, my wife enrolled in a legitimate medical insurance plan during the final days of Open Enrollment and now has decent coverage for 2021.

I have been saving newspaper accounts of outrageous hospital & doctor billing practices for years. Then I found this book, which has brief, cogent explanations of what you need to know in order to understand how to fight back — or at least what choices you can make to keep those bills as low as possible. I also had several conversations with the author about my daughter’s insanely expensive emergency room visit last year. She was generous with her time, very helpful. And has a good sense of humor. Who could ask for more?

She is a rare, true warrior for the public good, and her methods are sound and assertive, which is why her strategies get results. She has a wealth of knowledge derived from years of experience, along with a passion for helping people who are struggling to pay for their medical expenses.

Thankfully, my friend’s situation with insane hospital billing for a single ER visit was resolved by filing for a charity write-down. There is a third-party bill from the same ER visit that we’re still waiting to see if it gets written off. We’re told it will be, but if not, we are ready to go a more direct route that Adria guided us on. We were ready to go that route with the hospital if we needed to, but we didn’t have to. That would have been fun for me personally, but was unnecessary in this case. I consider the hospital lucky that they decided to do the right thing! We’ll see how smart this third-party biller is!

I called Adria even before I ordered her book and she was SO HELPFUL. She is a true gem and her heart is absolutely in the right place for helping others. She has a strong desire to serve those being taken advantage of by the medical establishment.

I was dealing with a lot of red tape while trying to negotiate a VERY inflated bill for a simple hospital outpatient test. It’s sad how during all that time I was asking help or at least a little cooperation/consideration from the hospital and other entities, no one would. I was feeling like there was no where to turn and didn’t have any idea of what to do next.

That help DID come once I found the MedWise website online and spoke with Adria Gross for the first time. A massive weight came off my shoulders once we spoke about my situation. Now, my medical bill issue has been solved thanks to Adria and her book.

The assistance and advice she gave me was more than I could ask for, and I can say I slept better at night knowing she was in my corner and working extremely hard to help me. Adria kept me in the loop during the entire process and that gesture really diminished my anxiety during the times I was feeling negative and defeated.

Adria’s, kindness, wisdom and cheerfulness, is only overshadowed by the sense of professionalism and thoroughness she displayed, not only to me but I’m sure also to other clients. My only regret is I didn’t find out about her book and MedWise sooner than I did.

I am very blessed to have had Adria as an Advocate. She really helped me and I do also recommend her book. If I had read it before getting my medical test, I would’ve definitely avoided the medical bill trap I fell into. If you are in trouble with medical bills, this book will tell you what to do and how to contact someone.

Many thanks to the Author, Adria Gross!

Adria is amazing! With one 20-minute phone call she saved us a couple thousand dollars. She also helped me make sure that my Dad had the absolute best care without being overcharged in anyway. She saved our family over $10,000 in costs related to transportation, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. Not to mention she saved dozens of hours in learning the system that is designed for time pressured regular people to not learn. She is absolutely amazing and super effective. You simply can’t learn what she knows or be as effective to her. I highly recommend her working with you. Thanks!

My name is Bianey Paramo and I would just like to take the time to say how thankful my family and I are to Adria Gross for helping us resolve a very big hospital bill above $23,000. I have four children and my husband is the only one who works and it worried us on how we were going to pay the amount. I thank God for meeting Adria Gross and all of her hard work in turning $23,000 to just $600. I hope God sends her many blessings and helps her to keep helping people that are in the same situation we were in, because without her we wouldn’t have solved this problem.

I cannot thank you enough for your recent medical bill advocacy on my behalf regarding an exorbitant medical bill for routine blood work. Feeling caught between a lab that was billing me and an insurance company that would not honor its claim, I turned to you for advocacy. You immediately allayed my concerns, worked closely with me, conducted valuable research and together we contacted the laboratory involved to resolve this issue, all within one week. Due to your stalwart involvement, the laboratory settled for a small payment-in-full that amounted to 24 times less than the lab originally charged for its work. You immediately brought to the lab’s attention a fee amount that is usual, reasonable, customary and allowable, based on your expertise and they immediately accepted the offer. It must also be stated that throughout this ordeal you remained accessible, personable, affable and good-humored, characteristics that certainly made me feel much better. It is clear to me that our system has been designed for profit on the part of insurance companies and others involved in the medical profession as opposed to attending to the health of our citizenry. The system is also terribly complicated and bureaucratic. That said, it is good to know that there are decent individuals such as you who can offer a helping hand at a time of need. I highly recommend your professional services without hesitation to anyone experiencing a medical billing issue. Together, we fought “Goliath” and because of your advocacy, clearly “David won the battle”.

Due to MedWise Insurance Advocacy within a short period of time my denied claim was paid. I experienced a test at a New York City hospital; all the bills were paid by my insurance carrier except for the pathology reports. The hospital is located in New York City and the pathology bills were sent from another state. The insurance company kept denying the claims since the bill was being sent from outside New York State. Adria Gross, at MedWise, realized the confusion and kept going up the ladder within the insurance company for them to understand, determine and agree that the claim was payable. Bravo to MedWise for contesting the claim to be paid! Thank you Adria at MedWise for your productive work and fortitude.

I’ve known Adria for several years and have had numerous opportunities to discuss business ideas and processes with her. I have gone to her numerous times for information and advice regarding her areas of expertise. Adria is extremely knowledgeable and always willing to help. She has received a great deal of recognition in her field, all of which is well deserved. I have no hesitation recommending Adria for all of your billing needs.
