Cancer Advocacy Services
Why You Need a Professional Cancer Advocate in Your Corner
Because precision oncology is not yet part of standard cancer care, it’s essential for you to have an advocate in your corner in order to get the most out of this approach. When CTOAM facilitates a cancer patient’s genetic testing, personalized research, and targeted treatment, we also advocate on their behalf throughout the entire process. This is the only way to ensure you will receive the tests and treatments that you need.
Benefits of cancer advocacy
When you have a professional cancer specialist advocating on your behalf, you are more likely to successfully access:
- Insurance coverage for most, if not all, of your treatment costs:
Depending on your insurance package, precision oncology services and tests may also be covered.
- Advanced tests through mainstream care or private labs:
These tests are otherwise extremely difficult, if not impossible, to get.
- Targeted therapies from pharmaceutical companies:
These treatments are otherwise extremely difficult, if not impossible, to get.
- Placement in clinical trials as close to your home as possible:
This can be otherwise very time-consuming to research and apply for, and you might not be accepted without a professional advocate like CTOAM.
