Financial Counseling

We understand that the cost of care and the complexities of medical insurance can be difficult to deal with during this challenging time.

Beginning at the time of diagnosis, Minnesota Oncology partners with you to make your journey through cancer care as successful and stress-free as possible.

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.

Angel Foundation is a resource for cash grants for qualified patients who need assistance with non-medical financial needs (e.g., groceries, rent) that may develop during treatment. Your Patient Benefit Representative can connect you with a social worker to help you apply for a grant if you meet qualification guidelines.

Please don’t hesitate to ask for what you need. Your Patient Benefit Representative is an important member of your Care Team. Please contact him or her with any financial questions or concerns you may have during your time with Minnesota Oncology.
