Insurance Information and Billing

Most insurance plans in the United States, including Medicare, will cover proton therapy. Generally, proton therapy costs more than traditional radiation therapy, but is less expensive than surgery.

If you are interested in proton therapy treatment for cancer, check with your individual insurance provider to learn if proton therapy is covered. Also, before your proton therapy begins, we will review all insurance information, coverage and address any of your questions or concerns.
