Tri-State Advocacy Project

We are advocates who have personally faced the challenges of having a family member with a catastrophic injury. The major obstacle that we faced and that you may be currently dealing with is not knowing how to get the help that you need. Calling government agencies can be discouraging and not knowing the questions to ask can make the process even more frustrating. Our goal is to help navigate you through this process:

Identify health insurance benefits and recognize any areas where coverage may be inadequate to meet the patient's needs

Evaluate the eligibility for government benefits (Medical Assistance, Medicaid Waivers and Social Security benefits) and help families with the application process

Seek out community resources for services not covered by insurance or government programs
