CRANBURY, NJ – It is often said that the worst 3 words you can hear at a doctor’s office are “you have cancer.” The diagnosis is devastating not only because of the disease, but also due to the costs associated with the treatment. This month, Oncology Practice Management released its seventh annual “Oncology Guide to Patient Support Services,” which offers a comprehensive list of cancer support services and programs that oncology practices, financial counselors, and other members of the multidisciplinary care team can reference to help assist their patients.
This year’s guide reflects the growing focus of pharmaceutical companies on helping patients with cancer access life-saving medications at a much reduced or no cost. This guide features company- and treatment-specific updates on new and existing support services offered by the biopharmaceutical industry.
The Seventh Annual Oncology Guide to Patient Support Services can be found on the Oncology Practice Management website at www.oncpracticemanagement.com/.
