For Patients: Financial Assistance from LLS
Press Release from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society recognizes the unique concerns of blood cancer patients and their families during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are amplifying our efforts to provide much-needed information and support.
As part of these efforts, we just launched a new patient assistance program –The LLS COVID-19 Patient Financial Aid Program – that will provide $250 to eligible blood cancer patients experiencing financial hardship due to the pandemic. This program will help these patients offset non-medical expenses including rent, mortgage, utilities and food.
Blood cancer patients who apply do not need to have a COVID-19 diagnosis, and they could have already received assistance from other LLS Patient Financial Assistance Programs.
Patients can apply online at www.LLS.org/Covid19PatientAid or by phone at 877.557.2672, but note that those who call are likely to experience longer than usual wait times.
