The Oncology Resource Advocate will meet with you at your first visit and verify your insurance policy, what it will pay for and what it will not cover. She will help you understand what your responsibility is. If you find you are in need of assistance with your bill, the Oncology Resource Advocate will be happy to review your financial options with you. You will be asked to fill out financial assistance forms and supply a copy of your last income tax return if needed. Our Oncology Resource Advocate is great at identifying resources to help with out-of-pocket drug costs. Please feel free to communicate financial concerns to these members of our team.
Financial Assistance and payment plans are available through Mercy Medical Center
