The Cost of Cancer: Beyond Insurance

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Despite the increasing number of patients covered by health insurance, the cost of cancer continues to rise. While insurance pays the cost of the treatment, copays and deductibles can amount to more than many people's annual income. On top of that, consider the cost of lost wages, continued rent or mortgage payments, food, gas, and childcare expenses. Join us to discuss the financial challenges that patients face while undergoing cancer treatment, including factors that may influence patients or providers on the value of different treatments.
