      Several of the top cancer hospitals will also forgive balances, if you qualify. You will have to talk to the financial office at your hospital.

      There are payment plans and charity care providers and programs available. Get the care you need and figure out all that as you go. I have a running tab with the cancer center I go to. I will have it from now on. It’s a permanent payment plan!

      It's federal law to have a financial advisor. Many cancer centers and hospital systems have charity to help people. It's nothing to be ashamed of.
