Medical Oncology Associates formally established the Prescription Assistance Fund in 2001 to assist cancer patients in need to obtain costly prescription drugs and nutritional supplements.

Over the past few years, the scope of assistance has broadened to include transportation to and from appointments in and out of town; durable medical equipment; patient medical insurance premiums; and home health treatments. In the aftermath of the September 2011 flood, we donated funds to patients whose homes and businesses had been devastated. The scope of the fund is constantly evolving as needs arise.

Medical Oncology Associates has long recognized the devastating physical, psychological, and financial hardships suffered by many of our patients. The fund was established to help those in need to obtain medications, services, and other items beneficial to their care. We respect the pride, independence, and courage of our patients and their families. We hope that any patient in need will feel comfortable asking for temporary assistance.
