Patient Assistance and Reimbursement Guide

Updated January 2021

The 2021 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 from 41 companies, granting eligible insured, underinsured, and uninsured patients access to more than 170 oncology medications at little or no cost, including new programs for Jazz Pharmaceuticals.

The 2021 Patient Assistance & Reimbursement Guide contains:

  • A message from ACCC Board of Trustees Member and OPEN Advisory Committee Member, Jorge J. Garcia, PharmD, MS, MHA, MBA, FACHE.
  • A feature article written by fellow ACCC Members to assist those new to their role in helping their patients access financial assistance.
  • A completely reworked “Financial Navigation Flowchart” to help all financial advocates streamline their workflows.
  • An updated Quick Reference Guide listing oncology-related medications, companies, and linked assistance websites.

The print version of the 2021 Patient Assistance & Reimbursement Guide was mailed to ACCC Members in January 2021.
