CancerCare® Co-Payment Assistance Foundation (CCAF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping patients afford their co-payments for chemotherapy and targeted treatment drugs. We provide this assistance to ensure cancer patients get the care they need by removing barriers in order to access treatment. Our easy, seamless, same-day approval process means you never have to wait to learn if you are approved to receive assistance.
As a partner of CancerCare®, we are also able to offer free high-quality, professional support services to anyone affected by cancer. We offer easy and immediate access to the full array of CancerCare services, including telephone and online counseling, support groups, resource referrals, publications, education and financial assistance.
There are several ways patients can be enrolled with the Foundation in order to apply for assistance:
1) Call the Foundation and speak with a co-payment specialist. Our toll-free number is 866-552-6729.
2) Enroll online as a patient - this option is for patients or caregivers enrolling the patient.
3) Enroll as a physician - this option is available for larger healthcare provider offices that frequently refer patients to our foundation. Once the office account is created, office staff can enroll as members of the office and begin enrolling patients. Once a patient is enrolled and account is linked to the physician of that office, staff will be able to check on the patient enrollment status, upload documents, check fund balance and process payments.
In order to work effectively with this portal and our foundation, if you are a large facility with many physicians (ten or more), it will be necessary for you to register those physicians so that they can have access to their patients. CancerCare provides you with a provider template MS Excel spreadsheet that you can use and fax or email the sheet back to us. We will import that data for you and create those accounts. Email completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 212-601-9762
