ACCC's 2014 Patient Assistance and Reimbursement Guide (PAP Guide)

blockquoteOver the past 12 months, 88% of ACCC member programs have seen more patients needing help with prescription drug expenses, co-pays, and co-insurance. Results from ACCC’s 2013 Trends in Community Cancer Centers Survey

Accordingly, cancer programs are spending increased time helping patients identify and access resources to help with costs related to their treatment, medications, missed work hours, transportation, and more. ACCC's 2014 PAP Guide is designed to help busy clinicians with these responsibilities, and much more.
