This training provides attendees with crucial information to improve patient and caregiver navigation of the practical and legal issues that arise after a cancer diagnosis and contribute to its financial burden. Topics addressed include: individual and employer-sponsored health insurance; government-sponsored programs such as Medicare and Medicaid; tips on using health insurance and the appeals process; navigating disability insurance and appeals; and managing finances and getting financial help.
“Thank you for doing this. As a nurse, this information is not provided in school and it is difficult to navigate day to day. All nurses need this information and if properly informed could grossly improve patient advocacy and knowledge.” – Intensive Attendee, 2018
This event is free and nurses and social workers can also receive free continuing education. Registration is required at https://triagecancer.org/intensive.
