What people are saying

This was the most detailed and beneficial overview of insurance and the financial implications of health care for patients that I have experienced in my time in healthcare. This is an invaluable resource and the information and advocacy you two are providing for not only cancer patients, but providers who can in turn utilize the resource to the advantage of our patients is nothing shy of incredible and admirable. Thank you so much for what you do and the inspiration you share!”

“I can’t believe I was allowed to do my job as a nurse navigator without this information!”

“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.”

“I have attended several Triage Cancer workshops and regularly rely on them for information. I couldn’t do my job as an oncology social worker without them! Thank you for all you do and how accessible you make all this information. Triage Cancer rocks!”
