The Care Committee

Funding Care. Funding Hope.

The Wichita Cancer Foundation Care Committee is made up of four or more independent volunteers who review applications on behalf of WCF. The committee determines which patients will receive insurance premium assistance and for how long.

Every application will be considered; however, we cannot guarantee to any patient that they will receive financial aid. Committee decisions are based on eligibility criteria and many other factors, including the availability of funds. For this reason, the Care Committee may contact an applicant with follow-up questions or to verify certain information. Certain factors—such as the insurance company, provider chosen by the patient and insurance company –will not be considered or reviewed by the Care Committee in determining which patients receive financial assistance.

The volunteers who donate their time to serve on the Care Committee do not have to be members of the Board of Directors.  Interested?  Visit our Volunteer page today.
