Special Note from Maddie (October 19, 2017):

As you may be aware, as of October 18, 2017, there are no copay assistance plans open to new myeloma applicants and apparently aid has been suspended to those currently enrolled in programs.  Within the last month, Patient Advocate Foundation, Healthwell Foundation, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and CancerCare have closed joining Good Days from the Chronic Disease Fund and the Patient Access Network Foundation which suspended their services earlier in the year. 

 

The IMF is diligently staying on top of this and will keep their website up to date:  https://www.myeloma.org/article/co-pay-assistance-programs-update  

 

For now, patients are advised to contact the financial aid programs of the drug manufacturers directly.
