Navigating Medical Billing

The Financial Support Campaign

Project Detail

Treatment and Stress and Bills…..Oh My!

The 3rd component of what we want to do: provide a network of pro-bono advocates to help patients/families navigate the staggeringly complicated, convoluted, and often deliberately fraudulent world of medical billing.

Ever feel like medical billing is gibberish? Our team of advocates will help you translate the gobbledy-gook into English, and sort out the giant hairballs of medical bills

Between doctors, hospitals, insurance companies, collection agencies, coding practices for medical billing, and the dynamic between all these components, it can require a higher-level degree just to decipher medical bills, let alone the time to make sure that each player/agency is doing what they’re supposed to.

In the best of circumstances, when everyone is playing by the rules, our healthcare system is so screwed up, that tons of innocent mistakes happen. Then take into account the amount of multiple billing, fraudulent billing, and competing interests (doctors want to collect as much payment as they can, while insurance companies want to pay as little as possible and deny as many claims as possible)….the resulting hairball can be a nightmare.

What if you had a team of people you could “tag-in” to handle these issues for you, creating one less source of stress, and allowing the patient and family to focus on treatment, and enjoying time together. That’s part of what TWOCF provides for families.

PROBLEMS

OUR SOLUTIONS

HELP NEEDED

 

Medical-Bills-iconFinancial Burden of Cancer

A cancer diagnosis can bankrupt a family. More than 50% of all personal bankruptcies filed in the USA are due to medical costs!

 

HEARTBREAIN-iconStress & Emotional Toll

Cancer is stressful – even in the best of circumstances. That stress can lead to depression, anxiety, PTSD – and can impair recovery.

Between your doctor’s office, hospitals, insurance companies, collection agencies, billing codes, and statements of benefits – you need a Ph.D. in ancient Greek to understand your bills.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

TWOCF is helping cancer patients and their families overcome the financial burdens that come with treatment & recovery. For patients in need, we’ll help cover your daily living expenses (rent, utilities, groceries, etc) so you can focus on the important stuff – getting through treatment and kicking cancer’s butt!

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

Cancer can lead to depression and anxiety – for the patient & their family/caregivers. It’s not enough to increase the patient’s length of life – we need to improve your quality of life, too. Stress can be overwhelming. We’re here to help you get emotional support, so you can thrive.
