How can a health insurance case manager help me if I have cancer?

Most health insurance plans have the option for people with cancer to be assigned a case manager, so be sure to ask for this service. This person will be able to answer all your questions.

If your health insurance is through your employer, someone in human resources will be able to answer questions about your coverage for cancer treatment.
