Podcast Encourages Listeners to Advocate for Health
Sixth “Under the Coverage” episode released this week
“No news is not always good news. You have to be an advocate of your own health.”
This message is emphasized throughout this week’s episode of “Under the Coverage,” aptly titled “No News is Not Always Good News.” The podcast features a nurse from Nova’s medical management team who shares how she advises patients as part of her workday. As a case manager with more than 30 years in the nursing field, this week’s guest discusses the importance of advocating for the patient – or advocating for your own health care when necessary.
Her advice includes encouraging people to follow their “gut feelings” if they sense something is wrong and to have a good working relationship with their health care provider (or to switch providers if they don’t!). Stream the latest episode for a reminder on why you should be educated on your health, ask questions when you don’t understand something and always follow up on test results.
Under the Coverage features people who spend their working days focused on health benefits and health care, sharing their insider tips on information they wish every health care consumer knew. New episodes are added weekly and are available on SoundCloud, Stitcher, Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts. Episodes are 15 minutes or less.
