FOUNDATIONS & FINANCIAL SUPPORT
Unfortunately, more often than not, scalp cooling is an out of pocket expense. We are working with payers to do everything we can to ensure that this won’t be the case in the future, but in the meantime, there are ways to find financial support for cold capping.
There are lots of foundations that may be able to help you cover at least some of the costs of scalp cooling. Each foundation has different criteria as to who they support, often based around Federal Poverty Level, though this is not always the case. Make sure that you do you research and know what you qualify for.
Another reason to ensure that you have foundation support is that you will qualify for the preferential foundation pricing structure, which is a discount of 25% on all of your treatments. This means that even if the foundation only covers the cost of only one treatment, all other treatments will still be charged at the preferential rate.
It is important to ensure that you have funding in place before the enrollment form is completed, as retrospective funding is generally not an option.
Once you have been approved for funding, you will be provided with a letter of confirmation which should be handed to your physician and faxed into the Paxman Hub with your completed enrollment form.
The most important thing you can do is to be proactive about wanting to scalp cool. Visit our website to find out the foundation support options that are available in your area. Don’t hesitate to speak to your Nurse Navigator or Social Worker as they may be able to provide you with additional support and information.

If you are looking for help and support from people who are or have been through cold capping, you may find our Facebook Group useful. It’s a private international community with a really positive outlook, who can give you advice and guidance on what scalp cooling was like for them.
It is not unusual that a site or hospital will have its own fundraising departments or foundations. It is always worth checking with your Nurse Navigator or Social Worker to see if there is any funding that would be an option for you.
Please see our locator to identify if your site has its own foundation.
