Financial concern resources

Many cancer patients worry about the cost of being ill. These booklets and factsheets provide information and advice on some financial concerns you might have.

  • Managing the Financial Impact of Cancer
    This booklet has been written to help you learn more about managing the financial impact of cancer. You may be eligible for some social welfare supports if you have cancer. The booklet gives details of types of hospital cover, waivers and refunds of medical expenses, social welfare supports, disability and mobility supports, living at home or nursing home supports, help for carers, travelling expenses, and coping with financial difficulties.
