Financial Assistance

Navigating the financial issues associated with advanced cancer care can be a challenge. Helping patients and families understand the billing system is a top priority at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center.

For most patients, a cancer diagnosis is uncharted territory. The associated financial challenges may be unfamiliar and overwhelming. To help patients cope, our financial team takes a proactive approach to helping individuals understand the financial impact of cancer care.

Our counselors are intimately familiar with the details of advanced medical care and the billing it generates. As a key resource for patients and families, these counselors help prevent additional stress during what can be a very stressful time.

Navigating the Financial Landscape

Our financial counselors put their expertise to work in a variety of ways, including acting as the patient’s advocate when insurance companies resist providing coverage. The philosophy behind financial counseling at UH Seidman Cancer Center is to never give up. Our experienced counselors maintain their passion and persistence as they explore all possible options for medical coverage.

  • Calculating copayment charges and other out-of-pocket expenses
  • Clarifying facility charges, doctor bills, hospital bills, explanation of benefits (EOB) documents, and other financial forms
