The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Co-Pay Assistance Fund Surpasses $200 Million
Date:8/21/2013

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is proud to announce that it has raised more than $200 million in funding for its Co-Pay Assistance Program since its inception in 2007.

The program provides support for prescription drug co-pays and health insurance premiums for blood cancer patients who meet certain income requirements. Patients with private insurance, Medicare beneficiaries under Medicare Part B and/or Medicare Plan D, Medicare Supplementary Health Insurance and Medicare Advantage are eligible.

To date, LLS has helped approximately 36,000 patients through the co-pay program.

"Receiving a diagnosis of a blood cancer can be overwhelming for a patient, and such devastating news can be compounded by an inability to afford the treatments," said John Walter, LLS president and CEO. "LLS's Co-Pay Assistance Program helps alleviate this burden for eligible patients and their families. LLS exists, not only to find cures, but also to ensure access to the best available therapies for all blood cancer patients, and helping patients afford their treatments is a critical part of our mission."

Patients, caregivers, pharmacies and healthcare providers can easily submit online co-pay applications with a quick registration process, day or night. Doctors, treatment providers or pharmacies can apply for the program on behalf of their patients.

Visit www.lls.org/copay or call 877-LLS-COPAY to learn more about the program and which blood cancers are currently covered.
