When you have cancer and radiation treatment, a team of health professionals
takes part in your care. Each has a different role and may be located in different offices or locations. For this reason, you can expect to receive multiple bills for your treatment. For example, you may receive a separate bill from the hospital for services or from the lab for blood work
or from Riverside outpatient facilities for the services of the technologists, use of equipment and other related materials.
Your radiation oncologist directs your care by evaluating your cancer and planning and overseeing your radiation therapy. You will also receive a separate bill from the radiation oncology practice. The charges from your radiation oncologist make up what is generally called the “professional services” part of your overall bill.
Most health insurance policies and Medicare cover the cost of your treatment. Still, you may want to discuss your policy and potential costs with your carrier and our staff before treatment begins.
Patients receiving radiation therapy for lung prostate or breast cancer
can also check with their Patient Navigator
for help and concerns about insurance.
