OncologyRx Care Advantage(TM) Specialty Pharmacy Passes $15 Million Milestone in Patient Financial Assistance
Date:7/9/2009

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- US Oncology, Inc. today announced that OncologyRx Care Advantage(TM), its national oral oncology specialty pharmacy service, has exceeded the $15 million mark and has assisted more than 3,300 patients in obtaining external support for drug co-pays since the launch of Care Advantage in August 2006.

Even people with health insurance find themselves in need of financial assistance while undergoing cancer care simply because of the high cost of care." says Collom.
