Finding Financial Support for your PV, ET or MF
MPN patients can face financial hardships in addition to, or because of their diagnosis of ET, PV or MF. From the impact of having less energy to work full time, to wanting or needing to hire help with household tasks, to the high cost of copays or insurance, it can have a great financial toll on a person living with an MPN. Here are some resources that can help you:
CancerCare offers co-pay assistance for patients with Myeloproliferative Neoplasms. The fund is limited to patients with adjusted gross household income at or below 500% of the federal poverty level and insured through a federal health care insurance program such as Medicare, Medicaid or TRICARE that is covering a portion of the cost of the medication prescribed to treat the patient’s primary cancer. Some patients with private insurance could be considered if they live in a state that excludes beneficiaries from participating in a manufacturer drug assistance program.
If you are aware of patients with MPN that may need our assistance, please refer them to the foundation’s toll-free number at 866-552-6729. A co-payment specialist will be able to assist them with the enrollment process. Below is more detailed information on our enrollment and payment process.
Incyte, the company who produces Jakafi, also has a reimbursement program for patients who are taking Jakafi. Details about their plan are found on Incyte's website: https://www.incytecares.com/jakafi-copay-assistance.aspx
