Working Directly with Veterinarians
Completed and signed Financial Assistance Applications and all required documentation are submitted by the treating veterinary practice to the Veterinary Cancer Foundation for review.
Veterinary Cancer Foundation’s Board of Directors will review and determine recipients based on both financial and medical criteria.
If awarded financial assistance a Letter of Guarantee will be forwarded directly to the treating veterinary practice.
Funding only applies to cancer related treatment and care as documented on the invoice. Funding does not apply to charges incurred prior to application approval and receipt of the executed Letter of Guarantee.
The treating veterinarian must submit a medical treatment plan and cost estimate every 30 days and include all related medical records for that noted time period. Subsequent funds will not be released without this information.
Patient invoices, medical treatment plans and cost estimates can be forwarded via e-mail, fax or regular postal service.
Foundation will forward proceeds within 30 days of receipt of itemized invoice. Funding will be provided by a Veterinary Cancer Foundation credit card. All funds are paid directly to the treating veterinary practice.
If the patient currently has pet insurance, all applicable reimbursements must be submitted directly to the Veterinary Cancer Foundation. This includes any payments previously forwarded to the treating veterinary practice made by Veterinary Cancer Foundation.
Funding for cancer treatment and care for a recipient may continue only if all of the following criteria are continuously met:
1. The treating veterinarian must submit the patient’s medical treatment plans and cost estimates every 30 days and include all related medical records for that noted time period.
2. Quality of Life for the patient must be achievable at all times.
