Patient Assistance Support
Are you worried about being able to afford the cost of your cancer treatments?
Our advocate team at Patient Assistance Support may be able to help you find a solution!
Due to the high cost of cancer therapy, many Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs) have been developed by pharmaceutical manufacturers and charitable foundations to help patients who have no insurance or who are underinsured get the treatment they need. However, the application process for PAPs can be difficult to navigate and requires a significant amount of time and effort.
To help patients with this process, we have chosen to work with Patient Assistance Support, a team of PAP experts who will work with you to coordinate and monitor the PAP application process. We are pleased to offer this service at no cost to our patients!
How to Get Started:
- Discuss the costs of your specific treatment plan with one of our financial counselors. If you are unable to cover the out-of-pocket expenses associated with that treatment and would like to seek assistance, notify the financial counselor. He or she will contact the Patient Assistance Support team to provide general information regarding your treatment plan.
- After speaking with the financial counselor, a Reimbursement Counselor from Patient Assistance Support will follow up with you directly to obtain any additional information necessary regarding your treatment and specific financial situation to determine which PAPs you may qualify for and could best fit your needs.
- The Patient Assistance Support team will assist with and monitor the application process, providing a prompt notification to both you and the financial counselor once a final determination is made by the PAP.
Though not all applicants are guaranteed for approval since each Patient Assistance Program sets its own eligibility criteria that typically take into consideration income thresholds, household size, and status of prescription insurance coverage, the Patient Assistance Support team maintains a current working knowledge of the requirements for the various programs available and is able to quickly identify the programs that best match each patient’s unique situation. As a result, Patient Assistance Support has been able to achieve a high success rate, and you can feel confident that the best effort will be extended on your behalf.
We know that cancer treatment is expensive, and we are pleased to provide this resource so that you can focus on the most important issue – fighting cancer!
