Financial assistance and co-pay or foundation programs are available to help patients with their out-of-pocket expenses. These programs are either diagnosis driven or specific to particular drugs given. This requires your participation in providing information and completing and signing forms. If you have questions regarding your statement or account, please call our office.
Maria, our Patient Services Coordinator, works with patients and their family members to help relieve the financial pressure that can be caused by cancer treatment. By accessing various non-profit organizations and foundations, we can assist patients throughout their entire cancer journey. If you are feeling overwhelmed with financial pressure, please give us a call at (559) 650-4821.
Women’s Cancer Care accepts all major PPOs, Medicare, and some HMOs for treatment. We encourage individuals to contact our office regardless of insurance plan, as we make every effort to provide care to all cancer patients.
You must provide us with your current and complete insurance information. We will regularly request copies of your insurance card(s). A member of our team will schedule your treatment as soon as insurance authorization is obtained. There can be up to a seven-day waiting period. Both primary and secondary plans can be billed as a courtesy. Please notify our office as soon as there are any insurance changes so that treatment can continue as scheduled.
Co-payments are expected at the time of service. We accept cash, personal checks, VISA, and MasterCard.
Women’s Cancer Care is a member of Santé Foundation Medical Group (SFMG), and your bill for services will come from SFMG. Although we file your insurance claims and accept assignment of benefits, you are ultimately responsible for any services not covered by your plan (deductibles, co-payments, co-insurance, etc.). We will mail you a monthly statement. All accounts with unpaid balances will be charged an annual interest rate of 18%. Balances are due upon receipt. There are payment plans available for your convenience, and we do not apply interest at this time.
There is a $25.00 charge for all returned checks.
We charge $25 per form or letter. A copy fee will be charged for copies of medical records if the number of pages exceeds 20 pages. Any record requests over 20 pages will be put on CD ONLY, at the cost of $25 per CD. We will contact you when they are ready. Please allow up to five full business days.
