Alpha Med Cancer Center is committed to helping make your cancer treatment affordable.
Whether you have private health insurance or government sponsored insurance, understanding what costs to expect before starting treatment can help you manage the financial impact of cancer care. Your personal costs will depend on several factors, including the length and type of your cancer treatment plan and the extent of your health insurance coverage.
Our Financial Navigator team can help identify or suggest ways to help reduce or manage your associated costs, and refer you to support services that may offer assistance with the financial challenges you may be facing. We will work with you to develop a personalized payment plan that meets your financial needs.
If you have any questions or need additional information you may reach one of our Financial Navigators at 708-745-9955.
Our Financial Navigator team is located in Suite LL3 at our Tinley Park location.
