Financial Navigation Program to Improve Understanding and Management of Financial Aspects of Cancer Care for Patients and Their Spouses

This clinical trial examines a financial navigation program in helping patients and their
spouses understand and better manage the financial aspects of cancer care. Cancer patients
and their spouses may be at high risk for financial problems because of the cost of cancer
treatment. A financial navigator is a person or team who work with patients and their
families to help them reduce stress or hardship related to the cost of cancer treatment.
Financial navigators help patients understand their out-of-pocket expenses and what their
health insurance plans may cover. Financial navigation may also help patients set up payment
plans, find cost-saving methods for treatments, and improve access to healthcare services
that the patient needs. Providing financial navigation to patients may help reduce financial
worries and improve quality of life.
