ROBIN’S NEST – Northern Kentucky (Robin’s Nest) provides non-medical financial assistance for cancer patients if the applicant meets our criteria explained below under “Who We Can Help”. ROBIN’S NEST was created to help with regular, everyday expenses such as, transportation, utilities, child care, housing, mortgage or rent, and other out-of –pocket expenses that are unable to be paid by the patient as a result of the cancer diagnosis.
All awards are made at the sole discretion of ROBIN’s NEST. Each application is given careful, individual consideration, but ROBIN’S NEST does not guarantee assistance to anyone. ROBIN’S NEST has limited financial resources and will not be able to meet all your financial needs while you are undergoing treatment. We strongly encourage you to explore all other options for assistance during your treatment.
Who We Can Help
Service Areas: The areas served by ROBIN’S NEST are those residents of Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Verification resident status may be requested. Depending on available resources and specific cases, ROBIN’S NEST may decide to broaden this service area as needed.
Medical: To qualify for assistance you must have been diagnosed with cancer within the previous six months, currently undergoing medical treatments for the cancer, or recovering from medical treatments completed within the last six months. The reason for needing financial assistance must be related to your cancer diagnosis and treatment. Federal HIPPA regulations require that ROBIN’S NEST obtain your permission in writing to discuss your case with anyone else. ROBIN’S NEST will need diagnosis and treatment information from your medical provider and must have proof of your consent to obtain this information.
Community and Government Resources: Because ROBIN’S NEST may not have enough resources to meet all your financial needs; we very strongly suggest that you apply for all community and government resources for which you could qualify.
How Much We Can Help
The amount of support we provide for each individual may vary depending on ROBIN’S NEST resources. The maximum Robin’s Nest can grant to a patient is $300 every three months, with a maximum of $1,200 during a 12 month period. Grant amounts are subject to ROBIN’s NEST resources.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: ROBIN’S NEST may verify any information submitted. If you provide incorrect or misleading information on your application, on additional materials, or in any verbal communication with ROBIN’S NEST representatives, ROBIN’S NEST reserves the right to immediately suspend any and all current and future funding and recover all such amounts.Download Financial Assistance Form
