Common Questions About Our Doctors Match Program
How will I get matched to a doctor?
Our team of Patient Advocates will call you to learn about you and your mesothelioma diagnosis. Our experts will then find a top mesothelioma doctor in your area based on your unique diagnosis.
We understand that every mesothelioma patient is different and deserves high-quality, specialized treatment.
Our experienced team will use our resources to help find a doctor near you that is experienced in treating your type of mesothelioma.
What information will I need for the call?
Our team will give you a call to collect the information about you and your diagnosis needed to match you with an experienced mesothelioma specialist.
Some of the questions our team may ask include:
- Have you been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease?
- What mesothelioma symptoms have you experienced?
- Were you ever exposed to asbestos – on the job or secondhand?
- What mesothelioma treatment options are you interested in?
- Can you travel to a doctor for treatment, would you prefer to stay local?
If you don’t know the answers to these questions yet, don’t worry. Our team can help you learn more about your needs and find the right doctor for you.
Can you help me enroll in a clinical trial?
Yes. Our Mesothelioma Doctor Match program can help connect you with top mesothelioma specialists who conduct clinical trials around the country.
There are several new mesothelioma treatment options that come from clinical trials conducted by top cancer centers nationwide. Doctors test new therapies with the hope of treating and curing mesothelioma.
Some new and emerging mesothelioma treatments include:
- Epigenetic therapy (altering gene expression in histones to kill cancer cells)
- Photodynamic therapy (high-intensity light used to destroy cancer cells)
How much does mesothelioma treatment cost?
The total cost of mesothelioma treatment is often over $400,000 – more than many families can afford. This figure also does not take into account additional costs like lost wages, home care, and more.
However, it’s important to remember this figure does not reflect every patient’s individually curated treatment plan. Your treatment costs can depend on your health insurance coverage, VA benefits, and other factors. Our team can help you find a mesothelioma specialist near you who works with your insurance and budget.
We can also help you understand the financial resources that may be available to you and your family – including filing a mesothelioma claim to help pay for treatment.
