There are so many things to cope with after a cancer diagnosis, and functioning as an adult. Join us for a webinar that will discuss many of the life skills that should be taught in high school. Topics include dealing with finances after a diagnosis, insuring for an adequate insurance portfolio (life, health, disability, etc.) and creating an estate plan.
This webinar explores the different types of health insurance, learn how to pick the best plan to reduce out-of-pocket expenses, as well as other ways to reduce the financial burden of cancer. This webinar will provide social workers, nurses, and other types of health care professionals with a foundation to help patients make those decisions and provide appropriate referrals.
A cancer diagnosis and treatment can have a long-lasting impact on your finances. This webinar will discuss practical tips to reduce the financial impact of a cancer diagnosis, how to maintain or rebuild financial health, and where to find financial assistance.
Understanding how federal and state laws, employer policies, and disability insurance work together is key to being able to take time off work, maintain an income, and protect your job and employer-sponsored health insurance coverage. There are also options for caregivers who need to take time off work. This session will cover the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family & Medical Leave Act, state leave laws, and disability insurance options, and explain how they can work together for you.
Estate planning can be overwhelming and can often bring up topics that are difficult to discuss. However, being prepared can also bring a sense of comfort. This webinar will cover the various documents that can make up an estate plan, things to consider as you begin the process of creating your plan and options available to individuals to protect their medical decision making rights.
Has your health insurance company denied coverage for a treatment, procedure or a prescription drug? You don’t need to take “No” for an answer. Depending on the type of health insurance coverage you have, there is a process for appealing your insurance company’s decision. This webinar will describe the appeals process for private health insurance, employer-sponsored health insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid, to help you get the medical care you need.
