Managing Your Money

Next » « Previous


The better you handle your money, the more likely you will have the means to pay for the care you need while maintaining your lifestyle.

You can still obtain health insurance and life insurance despite your diagnosis.

Check the rest of your insurance coverages such as automobile and renters or homeowners insurance to be sure you have what you need. An unexpected loss at this point in your life could be devastating -- including affecting your ability to access proper health care.

A budget helps prioritize your spending. A simple organized system for paying your bills, particularly medical bills, saves money and time. Help is available if you need it through friends or professionals known as Daily Money Managers.

If you have any excess money, use it to create an Emergency+Fund in case you need extra money for a drug or treatment not covered by insurance. The fund will also come in handy for a rainy day.

If you have investments, reexamine your investment strategy taking your diagnosis and potential medical needs into account. Start with the question whether you should make investment decisions on your own or use an advisor. Choose financial advisors with care, including a financial planner, investment professional and accountant.

Be sure your important documents are stored appropriately.
