Learn and understand the language of cancer and treatment

Your patient navigator can help interpret the medical terminology used by your doctors, into language and conversations you can more easily understand. They can even provide helpful preparation for upcoming treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.

Health insurance can be overwhelming and difficult to understand. Patient Navigators can prepare you with language/ questions to discuss with your financial counselor and patient benefit representative. They can also assist you with accessing and understanding your insurance coverage, the difference between copay, deductibles, or out of pocket expenses, and more.
