Interesting Development

The AP reports on the growth of health advocacy businesses. These businesses assist company human resources departments or individuals directly with navigating the health care system. The article explains that

"The companies grouped into the health advocacy business range from small regional firms operating out of home offices to companies with national call centers the size of football fields. No one seems to have an exact count, but Flagship Global Health, Care Counsel and Enhanced Care Solutions are among the more visible names.

Health Advocate claims to be the largest. Founded in 2001, it now has more than 3,500 companies, unions and other organizations as clients, including Johnson & Johnson, American Express and The Home Depot Inc."
