Financial Advocacy Guidelines

The newly released ACCC Financial Advocacy Services Guidelines—a framework for oncology financial advocacy programs everywhere.

A Commitment to Equitable and Affordable Cancer Care

Financial-Advocacy-Services-Guidelines-2024-1440x1864Advances in oncology such as precision medicine and improved disease management have developed alongside increasing healthcare costs. Patients and their families often must navigate a complex healthcare and insurance ecosystem where financial incentives don’t always align with access to affordable care. The Association of Cancer Care Centers (ACCC) seeks to help its members better address patients' financial concerns. To that end, the ACCC Financial Advocacy Network in 2023 released its Financial Advocacy Services Guidelines to assist cancer programs and practices in developing and implementing effective financial advocacy programs.

ACCC is committed to advocating for and supporting all oncology financial advocates, from financial navigators and counselors to social workers, oncology pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, patient advocates, and more. We envision "comprehensive and equitable cancer care" as synonymous with fighting financial toxicity for everyone, everywhere.
