The delivery of radiation treatments is complex and involves tasks performed by multiple peoples. Some of these people and their role will become apparent as you have treatment. However, there are also many people that work behind the scenes. The cost of radiation therapy is similar to other specialized treatments. Most insurance companies will cover the cost of the radiation therapy. If you do not have insurance, our centers will do our best to work with you. We want to provide you the best care possible.
The bills you receive will depend upon the facility at which you are treated. For example, if you are treated at one of our hospital-based facilities, you will receive two separate bills. One bill is for the physician’s charges, which includes the initial consultation to review your records and discuss the treatment, your treatment planning and delivery by determining the method and dose of radiation utilized, using CT imaging of your body to carefully review each place that needs to be treated and normal structures that should be avoided, management and supervision of your daily treatments, verification imaging to ensure that the exact planned area is being treated with millimeter accuracy, and custom blocks used for blocking the area not treated. You will also receive a separate hospital bill for the use of the equipment, supplies, nursing, and treatment staff, your treatment plan, and daily treatments, verification films.
