Affordable Health -Care
I have a brother-in-law, who has cancer, and has been off work for a least a year. He and my sister have good health care insurance through his employer. He and my sister are in their middle fifties. Their out-of-pocket expenses for his cancer treatment, will certainly be six figures. Over fifty percent of bankruptcies in America, are because of healthcare cost. This is simply, UN-American and unacceptable! I don’t know what the answer is, but I do know, America’s health care is Dead on Arrival and needs to be fixed! We need to come together and problem solve this solution to help all Americans afford their health needs.
Understanding the Costs Related to Cancer Care
A cancer diagnosis can be expensive. And many people have unplanned expenses related to their care. Often, finances are a source of stress and anxiety. Sometimes, costs keep people from completing cancer treatment. This increases health risks. It may also lead to more expenses in the future.
It is important to identify your potential medical and non-medical costs. This information will help you adjust your budget. And it will allow you to seek financial assistance, if needed.
Creating a financial plan helps reduce unnecessary clutter and stress. This allows you to focus on your health and wellbeing.
