Have you ever felt overwhelmed or confused in your health care journey? Many patients juggle numerous phone calls and appointments with labs, pharmacists, and specialists, while also trying to understand what is and isn’t covered. To help, some health plans have recruited nurse navigators, like Faith Barron.
In this episode, Faith provides a look into the role of nurse navigators and how she helps patients find high-quality providers, understand their medical claims, and triage communication from all members of the care team.
Field correspondent Kate Pecora also speaks with one of Faith’s patients, Sheridan Keck. She shares how Faith guided her through her cancer diagnosis.
