Enroll Your Patients in a Support Program to Provide Access to Treatment Resources
Each year, the publishers of Oncology Practice Management update this comprehensive guide to sponsored patient support programs in the hope it helps you to guide your patients to the tools and resources that provide access to their prescribed medications.
These services can be an invaluable help to patients and can alleviate some of the anxiety and financial pressures that patients experience when dealing with a cancer diagnosis.
The services provided by each company will vary, but most pharmaceutical companies provide patient education about the disease and the prescribed treatments and offer financial assistance for those patients who meet program eligibility requirements. Support programs sponsored by pharmaceutical manufacturers may include services such as:
- Copay assistance programs for patients with commercial insurance
- Patient assistance programs for underinsured or uninsured patients
- Dedicated nurse navigators/case managers
- Personalized patient support
These services can be an invaluable help to patients and can alleviate some of the anxiety and financial pressures that patients experience when dealing with a cancer diagnosis. In addition to patient support, there are also services to help you and your office staff, such as benefit verification, insurance coverage determination, prior authorizations, and claims/appeals support.
This Guide organizes patient support programs by company name and lists the services each company offers. A list by drug name is included in the index.
We encourage all oncology healthcare providers to use the Guide and share this information with patients. We hope the Guide proves to be a useful tool to you in your practice.
