Covering the Costs of Your Breast Cancer Care

December 15, 2022

According to a recent article found at Breastcancer.org (Stolberg & Hargadon, 2022), facing a breast cancer diagnosis can be a financial strain; however, there are resources available. There are professionals who can help identify the resources you may need to help with paying medical bills, transportation, lodging while receiving treatment, and childcare. Professionals such as nurse navigators, social workers, and patient financial counselors are trained to help people manage their cancer cost (Stolberg & Hargadon, 2022). Financial counselors can also help answer questions about health insurance and provide tips for working with healthcare insurance companies. Medical teams may have a list of financial assistance for medicines and care (Stolberg & Hargadon, 2022). Managing cost without health insurance can be overwhelming, but there are ways to get coverage and find plans that cover pre-existing conditions. Included in this article is a podcast which covers:

  • the four most common issues people face when paying for cancer care
  • their personal experiences helping people overcome financial issues
  • advice on how to solve financial issues
  • resource recommendations for help with financial issues
