Question
Dear OncoLink "Ask the Experts,"
My sister has cancer and needs financial aid, how does she go about it?


Answer
We recommend that your sister inquire as to her eligibility for Medicaid in the state where she lives. The physician and/or hospital who are taking care of her should be able to give her guidance as to the application process for Medicaid and any other programs for which she may be eligible.
