What is an APS?
An APS is an attending physician statement. It is a report by a physician, a hospital, or medical facility that has treated or currently treating a patient who needs it for insurance purposes. An APS is frequently ordered as additional sources of medical background information for insurance applications. Obtaining an APS by yourself can be a daunting and confusing task. It is not always easy to work with healthcare providers to obtain records. Every healthcare provider will typically have their own way of storing and releasing records, making it difficult to understand how to obtain the records. You probably don’t even know where to start! Fortunately, there is Datafied that can help you!
