Routine Bill Paying
Scutta Advocacy Group assures that all appropriate bills are being paid on a routine basis, avoiding late charges or the interruption of service. We review medical bills before payment to assure that only valid bills are paid.
Personal Rights Protection – Protecting our client’s personal rights is an important part of what defines Scutta Advocacy Group. We offer personal rights protection in the following ways:
Power of Attorney – Through functioning as the client’s Power of Attorney (POA), we are bound by ethics and legal commitments to honor the wishes of our client in every aspect of their life. We act on the client’s behalf in issues of the person, such as healthcare decisions, living arrangements, and end-of-life paths.
Agent for Power of Attorney – Scutta Advocacy Group can act in the capacity of an agent for a professional or family member who is the POA, shouldering many of the front line tasks as directed by the POA.
Conservator or Guardian of Estate – For the clients without a POA, when they can no longer make decisions for themselves, a Guardian is often appointed by the courts. Scutta Advocacy Group is a court appointed Guardian and court appointed Conservator in both Georgia and South Carolina.
Agent of Guardian or Conservator – If you are a guardian or conservator, we can bring the strength of the Scutta Advocacy Group Approach by acting as your agent, ensuring that the best decisions are being made for the ward.
