Fox Chase has an experienced, multidisciplinary team of psychologists, advanced practitioners, and psychiatrists to support patients, families, and caregivers through their cancer journey and complicated medical illnesses.

Treatment may include:
In addition to our oncologists, surgeons, and medical providers, our team works closely with the Supportive Oncology and Palliative Care Program to help patients with psychological aspects of pain management, in addition to supporting patients and families through end of life care.
We also work closely with our team of social workers who provide psychosocial support to patients and their families, including guidance on financial and care needs.
Insurance coverage can vary, we advise patients and families to contact their insurance company to confirm coverage for mental health treatment and speak with our Financial Counseling Office.
