At New England Cancer Specialists, we understand that having cancer is stressful enough without having to worry about paying for treatment. That’s why we offer patients the free services of our trained Financial Advocates.
Our Financial Advocacy Team includes (from left) Torie Lavoie, Robin Laterte, Kim Shaw, and Annabelle Harcourt.
Our Financial Advocates are here to help answer any questions you may have about covering the cost of your care. They are specially trained to review your insurance coverage and alert you to any unexpected costs, and can help you find financial assistance when necessary. You should know that...
Many financial support programs are available to help people undergoing cancer treatment. These can range from assistance with travel, co-pays, and deductibles, to chemotherapy drugs, prescriptions, and even family care and food provision. Often, these programs are open to everyone, not just those without insurance. New England Cancer Specialists has Financial Advocates in each office dedicated to helping you find and access these resources.
Patient resources include:
“My doctor saved my life. Our Financial Advocate saved our family."
