Atlantic Health System Cancer Care offers several support services to help cancer patients deal with non-medical concerns, manage medical bill payments and maintain a nutritious diet.
Psychosocial Support and Counseling Services
At any time during your treatment, a social worker with specialized expertise in oncology can assist you and your family with any non-medical problems related to your diagnosis, treatment or hospitalization. You can rely on us to help resolve issues regarding community or health care resources, work-related issues, financial assistance, home care needs or hospice care. You can even meet privately with a counselor to address any fears, anxieties or depression that you may be experiencing.
Good nutrition is an integral part of well-being, but your cancer treatment may make it more difficult for you to get the nutrition you need to heal. Our oncology dietitians work with other members of your health care team to develop a nutritional plan that’s right for you and diet strategies designed to help you fight your disease and improve your health outcomes. We also provide instructional materials, support groups, educational sessions and one-on-one counseling.
Insurance Navigation Assistance Program
Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Morristown Medical and Overlook Medical offers patients and their families assistance to manage outstanding medical bills and insurance issues that can be overwhelming. Patients can schedule an individual session with one of our well-trained volunteers who are versed in insurance-related topics and issues. This service is offered to all patients. Walk-ins are accepted, but an appointment is highly recommended.
Cancer counseling services may vary by location.
