    Good health insurance is very important for cancer survivors. Without health insurance coverage, you will be responsible for the full costs of medical procedures, visits with your health care team and prescribed medications. In addition, without coverage you may have difficulty accessing needed care. Health insurance helps make the medical care you need affordable and obtainable.
