CarePlanners.com was founded in 2011 by Alan Blaustein and Dr. Nancy Snyderman (Chief Medical Editor for NBC News). Friends for years, Alan and Nancy grew even closer after Alan was diagnosed with thymic cancer in 2004. As Alan dealt with his treatment and focused on healing, he and his family were also confronted with many of the healthcare system’s inefficiencies. These inefficiencies included managing and coordinating multiple insurance companies, medical billing agencies, various hospitals and far too many physicians.
The more they discussed the healthcare system, Alan and Nancy recognized the limited resources available to help patients or caregivers, and the need for more help. When someone is dealing with the complex legal system, they call a lawyer. When dealing with the complex healthcare system though, no one was available to help navigate patients or caregivers. Now there is – CarePlanners.
The Greater Nashville Regional Council Area Agency on Aging & Disability is one of nine regional agencies statewide whose mission is to plan programs and services and advocate for the older population and adults with disabilities. The AAAD serves thirteen counties in the Greater Nashville Region of Tennessee: Cheatham, Davidson, Dickson, Houston, Humphreys, Montgomery, Robertson, Rutherford, Stewart, Sumner, Trousdale, Williamson and Wilson.
