Not all drugs you may need for your cancer treatment are covered by the healthcare system. An Oncology Drug Access Navigator (DAN) can help.
A DAN is a member of your cancer care team. They are hospital employees who help organize cancer drug coverage for the patient. The DAN talks to insurance providers, the patient and other members of the cancer care team. The DAN can help find funding for drugs not covered by the healthcare system. The main goal is remove some financial burden from the patient.
