Sometimes insurance isn’t enough to pay for cancer treatment.

Independent Patient Assistance Charitable Foundations

There may be a way to help your underinsured patients get the treatment they need with less financial stress. If your patients can’t afford their co-pay or coinsurance, Lilly PatientOne provides information about a number of independent patient assistance charitable foundations that may be able to help. These foundations are not affiliated with Eli Lilly and Company and have been established and are operated independently. Each foundation provides a variety of support for eligible patients that is foundation-specific. Please remember, funding availability changes weekly, so contact a Lilly PatientOne representative at 1-866-4PatOne (1-866-472-8663) or each individual foundation for the most recent updates.
