Finance Tips For Breast Cancer Survivors
Even though I had good health insurance during my surgery and treatments, I was always astounded by the costs. I saved every receipt and insurance statement and doctor's bill. It's always a good thing to do, because you may qualify for tax deductions. Be sure you gather all those papers together when it's tax time - and get the right form to submit your claim.

Insurance Can Help With Wig Costs
When is a wig not just a wig? If you have a prescription for a cranial prosthesis from your oncologist, then it's a durable medical good for which your health insurance may share the cost. Keep a copy of the prescription as well as the bill for wig - and submit a claim. You may get a nice reimbursement, which can make you feel better as you wear that wig!

You already know that paying for breast cancer treatment will be expensive, so check out your options now. You can get help to pay for treatments, so don't skip it because of money issues.
