LIVESTRONG Foundation and Patient Advocate Foundation Expand Partnership to Support the Needs of Cancer Patients and Survivors Nationwide
Date:7/22/2014

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) July 22, 2014

For the past nine years, the LIVESTRONG Foundation and Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF) have been working in tandem to help thousands of cancer patients and survivors understand their insurance options, facilitate access to care, and help survivors connect to resources dealing with work discrimination issues. In 2014, the two foundations expanded their partnership to include referrals from PAF to LIVESTRONG to help people affected by cancer deal with the other practical, emotional, and financial issues that accompany a diagnosis.

“On a daily basis, patients and survivors come to us facing difficulties with insurance and financial issues. We’re so grateful to have partnered with PAF to address these needs over the past nine years,” said LIVESTRONG Foundation Vice President for Programs and Strategy Dr. Ruth Rechis. “Emotional and medical concerns are two other major concerns facing people affected by cancer, so we’re thankful that we have been able to broaden the scope of PAF’s services by sharing our additional resources with their clients.”

Cancer can take a significant financial toll on survivors and their families, especially those that are uninsured and underinsured -- 30 percent of survivors and their families have to borrow money or go into debt, with two percent of survivors declaring bankruptcy due to medical expenses, according to the 2012 LIVESTRONG survey. Nearly 20 percent of survivors were denied insurance coverage for doctor visits at the facility of their choice, and eight percent of people have been denied the opportunity to receive a second opinion on their diagnosis.

To help survivors in these situations, LIVESTRONG and PAF have successfully been able to work together to navigate the health insurance options for patients and survivors, finding solutions that allow for timely, high-quality care at affordable rates.
