Financial Planning for Cancer Patients

Being diagnosed with mesothelioma can impose a heavy financial burden on both the patient and their family. Few patients can afford to completely pay their own way when it comes to treatment, relying on medical insurance to cover at least a portion of the cost; individuals who are uninsured or under insured, generally need to seek financial assistance from other sources. Although there is no typical cost for cancer care, it is not unusual for medical bills to escalate quickly beyond six figures.

Having the knowledge that resources are available, is the first step in coping financially with a diagnosis of mesothelioma. There are organizations and programs on the local, state and federal levels that can help, and compensation is also available to those diagnosed with mesothelioma through the manufacturers of the products that caused their illness. Making sound financial decisions for the future of your family is important, and addressing these issues early on will give you the peace of mind to concentrate fully on your medical care.
