While the ultimate responsibility for a financial obligation belongs to the patient or guarantor, our goal is to assist our patients and families in every way possible to maximize insurance coverage. Our business office specialists and financial counselors serve as resources for working with your insurance provider and finding answers on your behalf. We participate in Medicare, Medicaid and most managed care plans.
Through its growing Support Group program, sponsored by the American Cancer Society, we offer discussion, emotional support and educational programs to cancer patients and their loved ones to help them cope with cancer.
In order to provide out patients with the ability to maintain the highest quality of life and maximize the cancer fighting capabilities of the body’s immune system, we are now offering professional nutritional consulting under the supervision of Dr. Birenbaum, thus providing your body with the best response to cancer through healthy lifestyle choices.
Our onsite laboratory provides specialized testing for oncology and hematology. The Lab’s capabilities span all types of tissue, including tumor marker tests. While patients and referring physicians benefit from the convenience of a lab within the Cancer Center, insurance contractual arrangements may require patients to use other labs, with the results sent back in a timely manner.
Your doctor or his nurse has a list of names available of psychologists and social workers experienced in serving the needs of cancer patients and their families. Do not hesitate to ask for recommendations should you require these types of services.
