Cancer treatment is a difficult enough process, but the financial aspect of the disease takes a major toll on a patient's well-being as well. Studies have shown that after a cancer diagnosis, there are two major concerns during survival: care and paying for the care.
Some hospitals, such as the Davenport-Mugar Cancer Center at Cape Cod Hospital are making an effort to alleviate some of the stress associated with cancer-related financial strain. By providing patients with more of a precise treatment plan as opposed to a broad overview, they are able to address the spectrum of concerns. They make sure they are as specific as possible with patients so they are able to understand each step of treatment and when and how the associated costs will hit them.
