MPE Fund Cancer Treatment Program

Head and neck radiation and chemotherapy help treat cancer, but they can also have side effects. Some of these side effects can affect the mouth and could cause you to delay or stop your cancer treatment. To help prevent serious problems, see a dentist prior to starting chemotherapy or radiation. Your dentist should work with your oncologist to determine appropriate and necessary treatment. The MPE Fund may provide additional preventive benefits for patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. All co-payments and plan year maximums outlined in the Indemnity Plan and EPN Plan descriptions will be in effect.
