Consider cost when setting up care/resources
- Is this sustainable?
How does their insurance coverage, Medicare, or Medicaid factor in?
Do so in a non-judgemental way
Speak with the patient and support system about finances, what they can realistically afford and commit to
You may need to discuss different options with the rest of the health care team if the original or ideal plan is not something the patient can afford currently or will be able to afford for the duration of treatment
