Cancer Support Program

Fallon Health’s Cancer Support Program is a central resource for our members who are being treated for cancer and for the providers who care for them.

By using a Care Team model, we provide support, coordination and navigation of the health care system during the treatment period through ongoing engagement.

As a health plan benefit, this program is free to the member. It is voluntary, confidential and does not affect the patients’ benefits in any way.

What we do for our members, your patients

The Cancer Support Program provides:

  • Education and information about diagnosis, treatment, healthy living and more
  • Psychosocial support for the individual and his or her family
  • Coordination between treating providers
