According to the National Cancer Institute, many drugs used for cancer treatment cost patients over $10,000 a month per drug. Depending on treatment, two or three drugs may be involved.
Treatment costs are often aggravated by loss of income. One study of 9.5 million cancer survivors age 50 or older reports that roughly 42% had exhausted their life savings and all their other assets just two years after diagnosis. Other research found that people with cancer are almost 3 times more likely to go bankrupt than those without cancer.
Even with insurance, co-pays can leave patients reeling. These expenses can mean patients have to cut spending on items such as food, clothing and vacations. Serious depletion of savings can even lead to bankruptcy.
“For cancer patients in Clark County Nevada, who are “on Medicare”, the Senior Care Plus Medicare Advantage Plan is available. Under this plan the Maximum Out Of Pocket (MOOP) for medical expenses is only $1,900 per year,” states Frank Arbizu, President of Nevada Health Specialists, Henderson, Nevada.
“A new client, Mrs. “M”, will start saving on out of pocket expenses within 30 days of her recent enrollment. If she had the Senior Care Plus Medicare Advantage Plan sooner, her current $10.373.87 bill would have been reduced to about $1,900!
“Once Mrs. “M” reaches her MOOP of $1,900 (which could occur quickly in 2-3 months) next year, Mrs. “M” would incur no additional medical expenses. She has told me about future treatment and in 2020 her medical expenses could be over $50,000 but would be reduced to about $1,900 with the Plan.
“The Plan is allowing Mrs. “M” to focus on healing instead of using extra energy worrying about the extremely high cost of cancer treatment.
“This Senior Care Plus Medicare Advantage Plan saves thousands of dollars of cancer patients’ medical expenses and does not deplete their estate or the estate of their heirs.”
