Navigating Finances

Cancer is expensive, and navigating finances after a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. These materials and resources will teach you about avoiding the financial burden of a cancer diagnosis (often referred to as financial toxicity), managing medical bills and debt, paying for prescriptions, finding financial help, budgeting, and more.

If you are looking for direct financial assistance, please see our database of Financial Assistance Resources. Triage Cancer does not provide direct financial assistance.

While these materials and resources are designed for individuals diagnosed with cancer, caregivers, and health care professionals, they are helpful to anyone with a serious medical condition, or anyone who wants to learn about how to manage their finances.
