Financial Assistance

A team of Roswell Park physicians has published a study that shows the importance of financial counseling for cancer patients to help them avoid “financial toxicity,” or the worsening outcomes after treatment that one group of patients experienced.
Planning ahead, choosing the right insurance plan and negotiating the right network coverage will help you reduce stress and make the process towards recovery easier. No one plans for a diagnosis of cancer in his or her life, so it’s advisable to investigate options for health care coverage while you are healthy.

At Roswell Park, we are doing our part to help underserved patients gain access to life-saving treatments, manage the cost of care and navigate insurance red tape. We discussed our initiatives during the Buffalo Cancer Moonshot Summit, and we are dedicated to the national effort.
