With regards to radiotherapy, fees will be generated during each phase including simulation test fee, treatment planning fee, treatment fee, and examination. Payments will be made during the actual time of each phase.
1) Simulation treatment costs (preparation costs)
This fee is generated during the series of processes to identify and determine the site for radiotherapy treatment. In the case shielding cover is need to be created to protect special immobilizations device and normal sites, additional cost may be incurred. If CT is taken for treatment planning purposes, the CT fee incurred will be included here. The payment for simulation treatment fee is made upon completion of the simulation treatment.
2) Treatment planning costs
This fee is for the production of the computerized plan using the images from the simulation treatment and the fee is be determined according to the precise plan established by the doctor in charge. Therefore, this payment is often made together with your first treatment fee when you come to your first treatment visit.
3) Treatment costs
This is the costs for the actual radiotherapy treatment and typically, the payment of the treatment fee is paid after each treatment. However, you may make payments for each week if that is more convenient for you.
4) Checkup imaging costs
This cost is incurred from the process of checking your treatment progress periodically to see if your conditions are accurately being treated. The costs may vary due to the treatment device used, different treatment site assessed, and change of treatment plans.
5) Examination costs
Additional examination costs aside from the treatment costs will incur when consulting with your doctor during the radiotherapy.
