Patient Assistance and Reimbursement Guide

Updated July 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 how to enroll in programs from 35 companies that taken together grant eligible insured, underinsured, and uninsured patients access for more than 150 oncology medications at little or no cost, including new programs for GlaxoSmithKline.

The July 2020 update contains:

  • A Table of Contents that lists medications by parenteral or oral administration
  • A updated Quick Reference Guide that lists oncology-related medications, companies, and linked assistance websites
  • A message from ACCC Immediate Past President Ali McBride, PharmD, MS, BCOP
  • Top takeaways from the 2019 Financial Advocacy Network Pre-Conference

This PDF updates the print 2020 Patient Assistance & Reimbursement Guide, which was mailed to ACCC members in January 2020.
