The cost of treatment for breast cancer varies greatly based on your insurance coverage, stage of diagnosis, recommended treatment regime, and the medical facility where you receive care, among other factors.

If you are newly diagnosed and not sure where to enroll in treatment or fear the cost may be prohibitive at your current medical facility, please review options below.

It is important, though, that you determine if the cost of treatment is prohibitive BEFORE starting care. Once a treatment is completed, it may be impossible find financial assistance. Komen Colorado grants and similar programs are not able to retroactively cover the cost of a bill.

If you have already started or completed treatment and find you cannot pay the bill(s), please contact the medical facility’s financial navigator to see if they have available resources or can setup a payment plan that works for you. You may also contact Komen Colorado to discuss your situation to determine if resources are available by calling 303-744-2088 or emailing info@komencolorado.org
