Do you have questions about navigating finances while living with lung cancer or with a chronic lung disease?
The Lung Health Foundation, in partnership with Wellspring, will be hosting a one hour webinar to discuss ways to navigate finances while living with cancer or other chronic diseases.
Topics will include:
- Government income replacement programs (EI, CPP, OW, ODSP)
- Workplace income replacement programs (short-term and long-term disability)
- Drug Reimbursement
- Managing out of Pocket Expenses
- Health and Travel Insurance
There will be an opportunity to send in questions ahead of time as well as ask them during the session.
We hope you will join us!
