Bringing Humanity Back to Health


Getting Started

How do I choose the right advocate?

Begin your search on our homepage. You’ll start by answering a few important questions that will help us match you to advocates with the right expertise for you. Explore profiles to get a feel for each advocate's approach, experience, and more. Want more personalized service? Call our concierge at (240) 693-3281. We’ll be happy to help you find a good fit.

How many advocates will I need to speak with?

That’s entirely up to you! You might love the first advocate you speak with, or you might need to speak with a couple to find the right experience for your situation. Feel free to book a few intro calls to find the right person; you can book up to three intro calls.

How much is an intro call?

Some of our advocates offer complimentary consults, while others with more specific expertise may charge for their time. You can find an advocate’s intro rate on their profile page.

Can I send a message instead?

After booking an appointment, you’ll be able to send a message to your advocate. If you need help deciding if an advocate is right for you, we’re here for you! Call our concierge at (240) 693-3281 or reach out to our team at

Is the information I keep in Solace secure and compliant? 

Absolutely. Solace is certified HIPAA-compliant through Vanta and strictly adheres to all appropriate privacy and security procedures.

Intro Calls & Beyond

What if I need to reschedule?

Life happens, we get it. Please be courteous! You can cancel and rebook any appointment with 24 hours’ notice at absolutely no cost. If you cancel within 24 hours of your appointment, you may be charged.

What should I expect in an intro call?

During an intro call, your advocate will listen to your needs, determine if their experience is a good fit for you, and discuss what next steps might look like. After your intro call, you can decide if you’d like to contract this advocate or keep looking.

What happens after an intro call?

After an intro call, if you’d like to work with your advocate, you’ll agree to the terms of your engagement and can ask your advocate to send over a contract to make your relationship official. After that, you can work with your advocate in the manner most suited to your needs.

Can I book multiple appointments?

You can book one intro consultation with each advocate at their intro rate, and you can book up to three intro calls at once. After agreeing to work with an advocate, you’re free to book as many appointments with that advocate as you like, which will be charged at their usual hourly rate.

What do I do if I don’t want to work with my advocate?

If you don’t want to work with your advocate, you can simply indicate on the platform after the call that you’re not interested in moving forward. Advocates are professionals and understand that sometimes, it simply isn’t a good fit.

How do I work with my advocate going forward?

On the Solace platform, you’ll have the opportunity to schedule time with your advocate, share files, add your care team or family members, and more. You’ll also be able to message your advocate to coordinate your needs going forward.

Contracts & Payments

Do I need to sign a contract?

To begin working with an advocate, you will need to sign a contract on Solace following your intro call. A contract protects you and your advocate by allocating a specific amount of time to your relationship, so your advocate can help you with your individual concerns. Contracts also allow your advocate to give you an estimate on cost and share specific goals they attend to work toward on your behalf.

How does payment work? 

As part of working with your advocate on Solace, they will bill you through the Solace platform as necessary. When your advocate invoices you, we’ll send a copy of the invoice to your email and Solace dashboard, and, we will charge the payment card you have associated with your account. All payments are completed securely through Stripe, a trusted payment processor.

Can I use my HSA/FSA? 

As a health-related expense, advocates and care managers are generally eligible for HSA/FSA coverage or reimbursement. 

In Case of Emergency

Rates & Payments

How do I charge my clients?

Billing is a breeze with our handy invoicing features. Appointments scheduled through Solace will automatically be billed and paid to you. You can also use our invoicing feature (located on your dashboard) to create custom invoices for your time, expenses, retainers, and more. Invoiced clients will be automatically charged via the credit card they have on file.

How do my rates work?

When you create your Solace profile, you’ll set two rates: one for your intro calls with prospective clients, and one for your hourly rate. New clients will be able to book one call at your intro rate, which you can also offer at no charge. Future calls booked through Solace will be invoiced at your hourly rate. You can always use custom invoicing to adjust charges and rates, and you can update your rate settings at any time.

What if I don’t charge hourly?

That’s fine! You have the ability to initiate custom invoices for your services, including line items. We also offer a retainer contract payment format. This allows you to bill for any retainer payments. Our custom line item format will accommodate any other fee structures. We’re also actively building features to allow for more effortless invoicing.

You can view your invoices on your dashboard, by clicking the “Get Paid” icon. You can also view invoices by client within each client’s file.

Am I required to invoice through Solace?

You have the opportunity to manually invoice for the time you’ve spent with a client through your dashboard. Clients will be automatically charged with the credit card they have on file.

Appointments & Security

What if I need to reschedule?

Life happens, we get it. Please take cancellations seriously and avoid them when possible, but if you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, you can do so from your dashboard. We recommend you reach out to your client before cancelling and let them know a good time to reschedule.

I don’t want to work with my client any longer. What should I do?

For whatever reason, if your relationship with your client no longer feels like a good fit, you have the ability to cancel your agreement with them at any time. Before you take this step, we recommend reaching out to your client and informing them of your decision. If you need help, please reach out to us at
