Up until now, there have been no educational programs that assist Financial Counselors / Navigators on how to perform their job and to explain the resources available to this population.

At present, few cancer programs have a systematic process in place to identify patients in need and to develop a plan to meet their cost of care. Rather, financial counseling services are typically fragmented, with responsibility for various aspects of the process divided among registration staff, social workers, business office staff, and clinicians. As a result, many miss opportunities to assist patients and improve revenue capture.

The Financial Navigation program includes software that tracks the patients being navigated and generates a quarterly report that shows the financial impact of the program.

Training Program
The training program developed by the NaVectis group is divided into four categories:

ORGANIZATIONAL SUPPORT
The initial part of the training program is vital for successful implementation of the Financial Navigation Program.  It is important that key managers and support staff understand the culture shift that will occur with the implementation of this program.

TRAINING OF FINANCIAL NAVIGATION STAFF
The training of the Financial Navigation staff usually will take anywhere from 16-24 hours. The training involves learning how to utilize pharmaceutical patient assistance programs, co-pay assistance foundations, and provisions of the Affordable Care Act. The training also dedicates a considerable amount of  time on understanding Medicare benefits and how to find the most advantageous Medicare plan available to Medicare beneficiaries.

EVALUATION PROCESS
The training ends with an assessment and testing of the material presented.  This process identifies the skills and knowledge that the financial navigator needs to continue to develop.  Most participants find this process very beneficial as they discover the many avenues that Financial Navigation can take.

ONGOING SUPERVISION
Continued support and supervision of the Financial Navigators is a critical step with the Financial Navigation Training Program. The Financial Navigators are now putting the training in action as they implement the program with patients. Remote supervision of the Financial Navigator during this time is critical to make sure that the patients are navigated correctly with their financial obligations. This ongoing supervision can last anywhere between 12 – 36 months.
