Patient Assistance and Reimbursement Guide

Updated January 2020

The 2020 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 to financial assistance contains directions on program enrollment that grants eligible insured, underinsured, and uninsured patients access for more than 150 oncology medications and 30 companies at little or no cost, including new programs for BeiGene and Karyopharm Therapeutics.

The January 2020 update also contains:

  • A Table of Contents that lists medications by parenteral or oral administration
  • A Quick Reference Guide that lists all oncology-related medications, their companies, and linked assistance websites
  • A message from 2019-2020 ACCC President Ali McBride, PharmD, MS, BCOP
  • Top takeaways from the 2019 Financial Advocacy Network Pre-Conference by Advisory Committee Chair Clara Lambert, BBA, OPN-CG, Advocate Good Samaritan Bhorade Cancer Center, and Committee Member Lori Schneider, Green Bay Oncology

Print copies of the 2020 Patient Assistance & Reimbursement Guide were mailed to ACCC members in January 2020.

Email your comments and feedback to Maddelynne Parker, ACCC Content Coordinator.
