Financial Resources For Patients
Creating a GiveForward fundraiser is one way to help tackle the financial burden of a medical crisis.
These additional resources can help pick up where health insurance leaves off.
The American Cancer Society
As a cancer patient you may have financial resources available to help you. The American Cancer Society can help you learn about private health insurance, government-funded insurance plans, options if you are uninsured, financial issues and possible sources of help.
Cancer Financial Assistance Coalition
CFAC is a coalition of financial assistance organizations joining forces to help cancer patients experience better health and well-being by limiting financial challenges through:
- Facilitating communication and collaboration among member organizations.
- Educating patients and providers about existing resources and linking to other organizations that can disseminate information about the collective resources of the member organizations.
- Advocating on behalf of cancer patients who continue to bear financial burdens associated with the costs of cancer treatment and care.
Cancer care offers patients a number of support services including financial assistance. Limited aid is available to eligible families for cancer-related costs like transportation and child care. In addition staff can provide referrals and guidance in finding additional assistance.
Patient Advocate Foundation
The Patient Advocate Foundation provides patients with arbitration, mediation and negotiation to settle issues with access to care, medical debt, and job retention related to their illness.
