Frequently Asked Questions Related to Chemotherapy Cost

Tests before chemotherapy include blood tests, MRI, ECG, chest X-ray, etc., 10-15% of the total procedure cost is involved in medical tests related to the procedure. The treatment package contains the cost of the tests too.

The medical bills are included in the package when the patient is in the hospital. On the other hand, if the patient buys medicines outside the hospital, they are not included in the package.

If you have been given high-dose chemotherapy treatments then you might need to stay in the hospital for longer, perhaps a few weeks. If that’s not the case you may have to wait 30 to 45 minutes after the chemotherapy is done to make certain that you don't have any reactions to the medications. 

When the patient gets discharged from the hospital, they can return to their normal life after a few weeks. A patient may also switch from chemotherapy to another type of treatment, such as immunotherapy or targeted therapy to get the best outcome. These therapies cost extra.

A health insurance plan only covers the cost of hospitalization and it will not be able to meet the high costs of chemotherapy or radiation therapy, However, some insurance plans help cover the cost of diagnosis, hospitalization, treatment, and surgery, if needed. Please check with your provider to get the best-suited plan.

There are several alternative cancer treatments to chemotherapy, including laser therapy, immunotherapy, and photodynamic therapy, which cost slightly cheaper.
