Prescription Assistance

Association of Community Cancer Centers
The Association of Community Cancer Centers provide a Patient Assistance and Reimbursement Guide, including a listing of prescription drugs with patient assistance programs.

Cancer Care
Cancer Care provides financial assistance for active treatment-related medicine, transportation, as well as homecare. It does not cover basic living expenses such as rent, mortgages, utilities, or food. It also runs The CancerCare Co-Payment Assistance Foundation, a non-profit organization established in 2007 to cover the cost of medications for treating cancer for individuals who cannot afford their insurance co-payments.

Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy
The Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy provides clinical and reimbursement solutions to patients with oncologic and hematologic disorders.

NeedyMeds
NeedyMeds provides information on programs helping those unable to afford their medication and/or health care costs. The website has information on pharmaceutical patient assistance programs, programs that offer financial assistance based on diagnosis, free/low-cost/sliding-scale clinics, application assistance programs, drug coupons, camps and scholarships based on diagnosis, disease-specific pages, as well as government programs. All information is free, easy to access, and updated regularly. It is anonymous, so users don’t have to register to access information.

Partnership for Prescription Assistance

They offer a single point of access to more than 475 public and private programs, including nearly 200 offered by biopharmaceutical companies.

Patient Advocate Foundation – Co-pay Relief Program
