If you’re seeking financial help for lung cancer, trust Help Hope Live for fundraising.
On this page, we explore what you need to know about lung cancer detection, treatment pathways of the future, lung cancer treatment costs, and how fundraising for lung cancer with our nonprofit can help provide financial assistance following a lung cancer diagnosis.
For patients who are supported by a reliable insurance plan, some lung cancer treatment costs may be covered. Many plans may not provide comprehensive financial assistance for lung cancer patients, particularly if treatment includes specific drugs or treatments with high out-of-pocket price tags. Further, even if your insurance does cover your costs, finding lung cancer copay assistance can also be a valid concern.
Before insurance, the treatments for lung cancer will likely involve one or more of these options:
There is one type, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), that is used to treat cancer that is often covered by insurance. This type of therapy has evidence suggesting that it may be most effective treating several types of orthopedic conditions. Its use outside of these treatment types, however, are largely unconfirmed and still in clinical trials. However, it’s best for patients to talk to an insurance provider to determine exactly what will be covered.
Lung cancer is the second most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Smokers are at the greatest risk for developing this disease. Avoiding harmful habits may help individuals avoid cancer, but if cancer develops, early detection is key. Talk to your doctor about getting a lung cancer screening.
Lung cancer medical expenses associated with procedures, rehabilitation and therapy, and long-term health care will vary depending on the situation. Regardless of the specifics, the expenses can add up quickly for patients and their families. Finding financial support for lung cancer treatments can be a burden–but Help Hope Live can help!
