5th year worth it?

Graduating with BS in Health Science Spring 2023 (former pre-med). I mapped out a second bachelor's in Math & Stats and figured it could be done by Spring 2024. I don't mind the time, however, the cost of this 5th year concerns me. I'm looking into financial aid to fund this as I'm short on money. As a career-changer, I see this as an opportunity to buy time and reinvent myself with a proper education rather than trying to self-study. How much impact would a 2nd BS have? Would a minor be a better alternative?

Thoughts on the ROI of a 5th year for a quantitative BS from a non-target? Thanks!!
