Ethan Zohn's Scariest Part of Cancer Treatment: The Bills

08/06/2009 AT 08:00 AM EDT

With his usual good humor, Ethan Zohn addresses what he considers the scariest part of being treated for cancer: Dealing with the avalanche of bills that come with modern healthcare.

In this week's video update, the 2002 Survivor winner explains that two of his chemotherapy treatments add up to nearly $23,000 – and he requires six of them.

"These bills are insane," he says, noting that this financial burden arrives even with the "decent" insurance coverage that he carries.

On April 30, Zohn, 35, was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin's disease. His chemo treatments began in May.
