I started my cancer journey only 2 months ago, have a great PPO insurance and now a secondary insurance costing me $700/ month, but I already accumulated about $4000 just in copays. I still have surgery and chemo and who knows what infront of me. I'm lucky because I can still work and make good money as a dentist, but I'll be on disability a lot and I have no idea how things will be then with all my other bills, mortgage, child support etc.
Many of you had many chemos, major surgeries, alternative treatments even abroad and I'm wondering how this effects us financially. How do you handle the medical bills, copays, do you get any help from any institution or financing companies. If you have insurance, how does it work for you and what do you expect when the new health care reform kicks in in October.
Your input will be appreciated,
