More than $3 Billion Recovered For Our Clients

Where can I turn when struggling to pay for cancer treatment?

If you are being treated for mesothelioma, you probably are well aware that cancer is an expensive business. Many mesothelioma victims struggle to afford not just their treatment but the ancillary costs associated with their diagnosis. Below are some resources you can potentially tap if you are running short of cash.

Insurance covers the costs of most cancer treatments, but there can be policy limits and exclusions. Some policies pay for inpatient services, but may deny coverage for vital home health services that allow you to continue to live at home while battling this terrible scourge of a disease.

If your diagnosis means that you can no longer work, you may have to turn to public assistance or local charities just to meet your day-to-day expenses. While there is no shame in relying on these supports, they may not be sufficient to meet yours and your family's needs.

The American Cancer Society offers assistance in various forms to those patients who qualify for their services. Their Hope Lodge program offers families a place to stay while being treated for cancer when they have to travel far from their home.

Another program offering help is the Healthcare Hospitality Network. They are an aggregate of almost 200 non-profit groups all over the nation offering no- or low-cost lodging for families when one member has to get cancer treatment in a location a great distance from their homes. Call (800) 542-9730 or visit their online site at if this might be an option for you.

Seeking legal advice regarding filing claims against the companies responsible for your workplace asbestos exposure(s) is a good way to hold them liable for your illness and subsequent reduced quality of life.
