Do you offer financial support options?

Your Patient Benefit Representative is your ally in getting answers to your questions and resolving any issues that may arise throughout your treatment journey. This program was created to assist you in understanding the financial aspects of your treatment and to set up a workable and understandable financial plan so that you can set your mind at ease and focus on getting well.

The Patient Benefit Representatives at Minnesota Oncology are insurance experts. They also have access to a variety of programs that can help with drug costs, and even with co-pay and co-insurance costs, if you qualify. They will answer your questions and ensure that a coverage plan is in place before treatment begins. Our financial counselors work closely with our Social Workers to help you access other financial assistance resources as well.

Should I consider a clinical trial?

Clinical trials help uncover various new cancer treatment options for a variety of cancers and give many patients the opportunity to receive newly developed cancer treatment therapies or investigational drugs not yet available outside the study. Typically, a cancer clinical trial isn’t the first or best option for newly diagnosed patients. Talk to your oncologist to determine if you’d be a good candidate for a clinical trial.

Should I get a second opinion?

It is only natural that you want to be absolutely certain that you have cancer before beginning treatment. It’s understandable that you may want to get a second opinion on your diagnosis and recommended treatment before making any decisions. There is no harm in doing this, and it will help you feel confident about your diagnosis and treatment.

Our oncologists provide second opinions regularly for patients. Most insurance companies will cover a second opinion assessment, but you should always check with your insurance provider before making an appointment.
