Oxford’s Enhanced Cancer Resources Benefit:
As an Oxford Member, you now have expanded access to a broad
network of cancer treatment facilities through Cancer Resources
Services (CRS). The CRS network is made up of premier cancer
centers across the United States including Memorial Sloan Kettering
Cancer Center in New York and Roswell Park Cancer Institute in
Buffalo. Cancer Resource Services’ emphasis is on the
treatment of uncommon and complex cancers, however, these resources
are available for Members with any type of cancer. Members
seeking care at these facilities will be able to take advantage of
special negotiated rates for services.
If you are considering receiving care from a CRS participating
facility, you must register with them in advance of your treatment
to qualify for the special negotiated rates. Oxford Members
may call 1 (866) 936-6002 to register. Please identify
yourself as a member of St. John’s University with access to Cancer
Please remember that all other Oxford plan provisions and
pre-certifications rules remain in place and must be followed as
per your Certificate of Coverage.
To compliment this network of premier cancer centers, Oxford also
offers Members with specific oncology diagnoses individualized case
management through their Cancer Support Program. Nurses work
closely with physicians to support and reinforce treatment plans,
emphasizing symptom management. In addition, the Cancer
Support Program provides resources available to all Members with
cancer that include educational materials, support organization
information and access to eCancerAnswers.com. This Web site
is available exclusively to Oxford Members and provides timely
information on cancer risk and cancer care.
