New Conversations About Costs of Cancer Care

VBCC - Media Library - Pricing
C. Daniel Mullins, PhD

At some level, cancer patients have always been thinking about cost. They just haven’t been talking about cost with their providers. The new patient‑centered focus in healthcare suggests that patients will have new conversations with their doctors. This will include conversations about how much they’re willing to pay for treatments.

In many cases, patients aren’t taking their medicines because they can’t afford them. What we need to do is set up social services for these individuals so that they can afford their medicines and continue to afford other things that are important to them, like paying their rent or their mortgage and buying food.
