Help Finding Resources During Cancer Treatment
Last Modified: May 8, 2012
If my cancer center doesn't have a social worker, who can help me with financial concerns, insurance problems, co-pay assistance?
Christina Bach, Oncology Social Worker at Penn Medicine responds:
You can access assistance with coping with financial concerns, insurance problems and co-pay assistance from a variety of resources---here is a list of my go to resources:
- The American Cancer Society or 800-ACS-2345 (general cancer information, financial assistance and supportive services)
- Cancer Care (financial assistance, co-pay assistance, support and education)
- Cancer Legal Resource Center (legal assistance, insurance education, workplace issues)
- Cancer and Careers (work place and disability education)
- PanCan Pancreatic Cancer specific support, education and resources
- Cancer Support Community Cancer Support and Education
These resources can be a great jumping off point for getting the support and education you need.
