Infusion Care Patient Resources

2.5 Minute Read

Our Infusion Centers make it possible for our patients to receive the injectable or infusible medication they need under the care of our compassionate team of nurses. We strive to connect our patients with available resources to make the healthcare process easier.

 

NeedyMeds is a 501(c)(3) national nonprofit that connects people to programs that will help them afford their medications and other healthcare costs. NeedyMeds is an online information resource consisting of programs that provide financial assistance. Utilize NeedMeds if you:

  • Need help with the cost of your medications
  • Need assistance based on your diagnosis
  • Need help looking for a low-cost health care facility
  • Are looking for local, state, or federal government programs

Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs), created by pharmaceutical companies, provide discounted medicines to people who are unable to afford them. Each program has its qualifying criteria. If your prescription does not appear on the Brand Name or Generic Name lists available on the NeedyMeds search portal, then it is not available through a PAP. There are other financial assistance options still available.

The Needy Meds' Meds' Help with Prescription Assistance Applications section provides information on organizations in your area that assist patients with completing prescription assistance program applications for free or a small fee.

Coupons, Rebates & More are offered by various drug companies and may offer a rebate, discount, or even free trial size of a medication. Offers for prescription medications require a doctor's prescription and are available on the Needy Meds' Meds' website.

National Infusion Center Association (NICA) was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit patient advocacy organization to provide a national advocacy voice for non-hospital, non-oncology in-office infusion to improve access to safe, high-quality, cost-effective care. 

We believe in bringing together all of our resources and talents to:

  • CONNECT patients with the educational content and resources they need to empower them to manage their condition better and advocate for their access to care;
  • COLLABORATE with our network of health plans, legislators, decision-makers, manufacturers, and infusion providers to develop all-win solutions to national patient access challenges; and,
  • ADVOCATE for patients'' access to more economical and accessible alternatives to hospital care settings.

Infusion and injection drugs are expensive, and patients face many barriers in accessing the care they need, irrespective of specialty. NICA is the only nonprofit organization formed to support patients'' access to these medications regardless of specialty. Understanding that many of the infusion and injectable medications face frequent access obstacles, we believe in creating all-WIN solutions that support access to in-office infusion/injection and the sustainability of the delivery channel across disease states and specialties.

Their success in overcoming many of the national issues affecting patient access can be attributed to the tenaciously passionate NICA team of experienced staff, advisers, and board members who believe in their mission and vision for patient access and the infusion delivery channel.
