Cancer-Related Employment and Insurance Issues: What all Patients and Caregivers Need to Know

A cancer diagnosis can bring with it a myriad of legal, financials, and insurance issues. Navigating these issues can be complicated, overwhelming, and stressful. But it doesn't have to be. This presentation identifies the most common cancer-related legal issues that arise for survivors and caregivers, including: health insurance and health care options; employment rights and taking time off work; and access to disability insurance and paid family leave benefits. Ms. Morales explains the laws that protect people and provide access to benefits to help people navigate these cancer-related legal issues. She also covers the ways that the Affordable Care Act (health care reform) applies to people coping with cancer.
