Financial Advocacy

ACCC is committed to continue to lead the way by building the confidence of financial advocates, connecting them with solutions and ultimately improving the patient experience. Through the Financial Advocacy Network tools and resources, our goal is to empower providers to proactively integrate financial health into the oncology care continuum and help patients gain access to high-quality care for a better quality of life.
