The relevance of such issues is even higher when the assistance is directed towards cancer patients. The purpose of the paper is analyzing level of costs for alternative assistance programs for cancer patients. The analysis has been carried out for Regione Calabria (Italy). Patients in the sample have been distinguished into several groups according to their health conditions as inferred by a multidimensional evaluation: patients’ multidimensional evaluation has been correlated with the level of costs
