Financial Help For Cancer Patients

  1. 1. The Cost of Cancer
  2. 2. Cancer is an illness that affects those suffering physically, emotionally, and financially. Many people believe that insurance will pay for the cost of treatment; however, that isn’t always the case…
  3. 3. If you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, there’s a good chance that you’ll have some out-ofpocket costs to consider. Although the cost of cancer is high, there are ways to get by financially during this difficult time.
  4. 4. Nobody wants to ultimately end their cancer treatment due to financial issues because it will lead to further deterioration of your health. To avoid situations like this, its important to enter your cancer treatment with a plan.
  5. 5. It is in your best interest to talk with your insurance company to see what exactly is covered. Ask about the following: • Co-Pays • Out-of-Pocket Costs • Lab Tests • Procedures • Drugs • Surgery • Hospital Stays • Home Care
  6. 6. It may seem strange to think about the financial aspect of cancer treatment, but it’s important to remember that it will cost money. Don’t hesitate to bring up these concerns to your team of doctors, as well as your insurance company. They will work with you to figure out which options are the most efficient and affordable for you.
  7. 7. It’s crucial to explore all available options so that you can continue your cancer treatment plan. Viatical settlements are one thing to consider. A viatical settlement involve selling your insurance policy so you are able to afford everyday expenses, as well as your treatment.
