We understand that cancer treatments and medications are expensive. During your course of treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center, you may be contacted by a copay coordinator to enroll you in a copay assistance program. The copay assistance program is funded by drug manufacturers to assist patients with their high out of pocket costs for infusions, medications or other treatments. The coordinator can help complete the applications and will work to potentially secure funds for your treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who qualifies to apply for the copay assistance program?
Patients at Moffitt with certain diagnoses and treatment plans that result in patients incurring high out-of-pocket costs may be eligible for the copay assistance program.
Will my insurance still be billed for the treatment?
Yes, the copay assistance program will not be utilized until after your insurance pays its portion of the claim.
Do I have to meet a certain income requirement to qualify for the program?
Some foundation assistance programs can be income-based; however, this copay assistance program does not have an income cap as the program is geared to assist with your insurance out-of-pocket cost.
Does it cost to enroll in the program?
No. Copay and foundation assistance programs are free resources for patients. These programs are provided by drug manufacturers to assist patients with their out-of-pocket costs.
Is the copay assistance program the same as the financial assistance program?
