Navigating the health insurance system with a child who is newly diagnosed with a brain tumor can be overwhelming. The following resources offer information about many of the questions you may have as well as options for low-income families and the uninsured.
The pediatric social worker is a key member of your child’s health care team. One of the things your social worker can do is to help you explore sources of financial aid for which your child or family may be eligible. The hospital financial office may also be able to help you make credit arrangements or see if you qualify for public or private sources of financial assistance. It’s best to apply immediately, because processing can take weeks.
