After a cancer diagnosis, time is critical. You are not alone in this journey. Moffitt Cancer Center considers you and your care its top priority. You can trust that Moffitt will be there with you through it all, starting with a better understanding of the financial impact of cancer treatment.
We embrace accountability and transparency in health care pricing. We are committed to educating you and your family regarding financial obligations. It is important to think about the costs associated with your treatment. Understanding these costs can help you establish the support, budgeting and financial assistance that may be needed.
A hospital’s charge is the dollar amount that is billed to insurance companies; however, it is typically not what a patient is responsible for paying. Your individual responsibility (out-of-pocket amount) is typically the dollar amount you owe after your insurance company covers their portion. However, it can vary depending on your insurance coverage and benefits.
Many insurance plans cover certain cancer screening tests. Experts have learned that screening for cancer can save lives. At Moffitt, where our specialized physicians use superior diagnostic imaging services, costs may be a little higher. The value is in detecting even the rarest of cancers in the earliest of stages when patients have more treatment options and better outcomes.
