Highlights

We deserve to be the healthiest version of ourselves. It should not be a challenge to get the care you need and it should not come at high cost. My goal is to help you understand your options so you can get the best of both worlds—quality health care at an affordable price.

Experience

Dr. Tanya Feke has firsthand experience with Medicare and Medicaid. As a primary care physician, she worked on the front lines caring for and advocating for patients who relied on these programs. She has also worked in urgent care clinics and routinely visited Medicare beneficiaries in their homes for wellness check-ups.

She expanded her knowledge of Medicare and Medicaid by taking clinical leave to pursue training in utilization review and medical necessity compliance. She currently works in revenue cycle management, consulting with hospitals nationwide to assure that the care you need gets covered.

With her eye on the evolving world of Medicare, she has published two books, Amazon best-sellers "Medicare Essentials: A Physician Insider Explains the Fine Print" and "Idiot's Guides: Medicare" with the goal to inform the public about how to avoid the common pitfalls of Medicare. Her website Diagnosis Life remains a hub of health and wellness information, free to the public.
