Mission Monday: Patient Financial Aid

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)  offers a number of services free of charge for blood cancer patients, their families and caregivers.  Today the focus is on the different patient financial aid programs LLS offers patients.

A limited amount of financial assistance is available to help patients with significant financial need and who are under a doctor's care for a confirmed blood cancer diagnosis. This program is supported entirely by public contributions and patient aid funds are subject to availability.

To find out if you are eligible for the LLS Co-Pay Assistance Program, you will need to contact LLS.  For eligible patients, the Co-Pay Assistance Program may offer a larger amount of financial support for select diseases toward the cost of insurance co-payments and/or insurance premium costs for prescription drugs. Please visit the Co-pay Assistance Program for more information or to apply.

The Patient Financial Aid Program provides $100 a year to help patients offset expenses. Receipts for expenses are not required. To apply, you must be a US resident or US military personnel stationed abroad and in active treatment or ongoing medical follow-up care for a blood cancer. Your prescribing healthcare provider must complete and sign the bottom portion of the application form.  The program begins each July 1st and ends on the following June 30th. You must reapply every year after June 30th in order to receive assistance.
