Mission Monday: Champion of Coverage
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has been selected as a "Champion of Coverage" by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). LLS joined more than 100 national organizations and businesses that have volunteered to help Americans learn about the health care coverage available in a non-partisan manner.
Our goal is to ensure that blood cancer patients and their families have the information needed to make an informed decision about purchasing health care coverage. In order to do this, LLS has created a dedicated section on the website, www.LLS.org/ACA, which provides helpful information and links to useful tools, such as the cancer insurance checklist that LLS helped to develop. The LLS Information Resource Center is also available to answer questions Monday - Friday from 9a.m. - 6p.m. at (800) 955-4572.
LLS continues to pursue opportunities that provide greater access to information and resources for blood cancer patients.
