Our Financial Navigation pilot is designed to reduce out-of-pocket medical expenses for families fighting cancer.
How it works
Our Financial Navigator works closely with hospital staff to collect key patient data including treatment plan, household income level, treatment location and other demographic details. This information is entered into a financial management platform called TailorMed. TailorMed evaluates the data, then provides a personalized report that projects out-of-pocket costs as well as cost-saving opportunities based on insurance optimization and utilization of co-pay and prescription assistance.
Our Financial Navigator uses the TailorMed report to:
- Provide personal financial resource guidance to families throughout the treatment process
- Explain options for insurance coverage and financial assistance
- Lower out-of-pocket healthcare costs (e.g. copayments, deductibles) and non-medical expenses (e.g. housing, travel, food)
- Assist families as they apply for programs that offer financial relief during cancer treatment
