  • Lodging and meals during treatment
  • Deductibles and co-pays
  • Home Health Care
  • Related travel during treatment
  • Care at specialty centers that may be out-of-network when it relates to your medical coverage

In addition, insurance can provide benefits that help cover the expenses related to prevention screening (such as mammograms).
