Is There Any Help to Pay for Cancer Treatment?

The cost of cancer treatment in this country is mind boggling! Is there any help to pay for cancer treatment?

Answer

Perhaps. Sometimes, hospitals or clinics can help out with discounts or charity. Sometimes, drug manufacturers can help out, especially with expensive medications or with clinical trial medications. 

Obviously, insurance is a major source of help when paying for treatment, but not everyone has insurance, and not all treatments will be covered. Some states have special Medicaid coverage for people with certain types of cancer, and even if your state doesn't, you still might qualify for "regular" Medicaid or Medicare.
 
How can a person sort through this confusing maze of information and options? Many clinics and hospitals have financial specialists who can help you. Just ask. And never feel awkward or embarrassed when asking your doctor about costs. Your doctor knows that it's smart and responsible of you to ask such questions.
