My Husband and I faced this very situation, a little over 3 years ago. Fortunately, the social worker at our cancer treatment center, told us about Cancercare.
I was given the phone number; and made the phone call, in the next few days. Two sets of paperwork were sent. One set for us to complete; and one set for the Oncologist to complete. Both were completed and sent in. We were reviewed and accepted. I would like to take this time to say, each case is reviewed individually; and, acceptance is not guaranteed. But, if you are facing a huge bill with Chemo treatment, it is definitely worth the call; and doing some paperwork.
I can say; we were not billed for one chemo treatment. I received notification; how much longer, they were going to cover the cost. The time was longer than I needed; so, I called them and told them the date of my last treatment.
I don’t know what we would have done without them; and, I was so glad we were told to contact them. I hope this information will help others, who are facing the same situation, we faced in 2011.
