Medical Debt: Advice for Cancer Patients and Survivors


The economic impact of cancer can be a major source of stress for patients and their families. This talk will focus on the rights of patients with medical debt. A lawyer will offer advice on how to negotiate with hospitals and doctors. There will be a review of the Debt Protection Law, which helps patients who have medical bills in collection.


This program is for people who have been treated for cancer. No observers, please, without prior approval.
