Patient Assistance and Reimbursement Guide

Updated October 2019

The 2019 Patient Assistance & Reimbursement Guide has the most up-to-date information on cancer drug assistance and reimbursement programs to help your patients alleviate the financial burden of their treatment. This guide contains directions on program enrollment, granting eligible insured, underinsured, and uninsured patients access to oncology drugs at little or no cost. The October 2019 update contains:

  • Pharmaceutical, non-profit, and foundation patient assistance and co-pay programs for more than 30 companies and 130 medications, including new programs for Sun Oncology and Verastem Oncology
  • Directions on how to apply and links to enrollment forms
  • Patient assistance flow charts for specific patient populations
  • Valuable advice from Natasha Gomes, financial navigator at DuPage Medical Group, on optimizing your electronic health record (EHR) to improve workflow, reduce patient expense, and increase assistance program enrollment

Print copies of the 2019 Patient Assistance & Reimbursement Guide were mailed to ACCC members in January 2019.
