First Appointment

What can I expect from my first visit?

When you come to your first visit with Regional Cancer Care, please bring:

  • Your insurance card
  • Personal identification (drivers license, passport, etc)
  • Physician referral (if required by your insurance)
  • List of Rx and OTC medications, including dose and frequency
  • Information about your medical history
  • Any related imaging films/studies or records you may have

Does Regional Cancer Care Associates accept my insurance?

RCCA accepts most major insurance plans. Visit our Insurance page to see if we are an in-network provider covered by your plan. If you don’t see your insurance carrier, please call us directly, and we’ll help determine your coverage. Call 844-346-7222.

Am I likely to have any tests performed while I’m at my first appointment?

After your consultation with your RCCA doctor, he or she may order some laboratory (blood) tests. For other diagnostics, such as medical imaging scans (MRI, CT, PET), tests are more likely to be ordered and scheduled for a later date.

Will chemotherapy treatment start on my first visit?

In a word, no. Your initial consultation (first appointment) is focused on diagnosis and on understanding your needs. Scans, biopsies and other types of tests are often needed before chemotherapy treatment can begin. Also, your insurance company will need to authorize your treatment, which can take about a week. Once we’ve received your test results and your insurance company approves treatment, someone from RCCA will call you to schedule your treatment… and your one-on-one educational session before treatment.

I need a copy of my medical records. What do I need to do?

To acquire a copy of your medical/health information records from Regional Cancer Care Associates, call us at 844-346-7222 to request the appropriate release form. 

Service and Treatment FAQ's

Where will I be receiving my chemotherapy treatment?

For many of our patients, chemotherapy is delivered right in our offices by oncology nurses trained in the latest treatments. In some cases, due to insurance rules, certain individuals may need be scheduled for outpatient treatment at a nearby hospital.

I have a blood disorder and need to see a hematologist. Is this possible?

RCCA’s medical oncologists are also hematologists, meaning that they’re experienced and knowledgeable in the treatment of blood diseases. From clotting problems to anemia, our hematologists combine skill with dedication to help you live well.

Are there assistance programs available to help with paying for my chemotherapy treatment?

Indeed there are. Moreover, if you’ll be receiving chemotherapy and need financial help, we can discuss with you the available assistance programs and how to go about qualifying. Find out more about financial assistance on our Financial Advocacy page.
