Cost for radiation therapy

My dad was diagnosed limited stage small cell lung cancer last fall. He did not have insurance so he needs to self pay the radiation therapies. He was charged $17k just for planning and then $2.68k for each therapy. Is this charge reasonable? The hospital has financial assistant program but they sent him to a clinic of the system who does not provide it. Later we figured it out any went to another center where he got financial aid. But the planning and the four therapies already lead to a huge bill. Do you have any ideas on how to handle the bill? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks. By the way, my dad is doing great now.
