Industry Sponsored Patient Assistance Programs

Financial assistance support programs sponsored by industry assist men with financial support to pay for the prostate cancer medication, testing, durable medical equipment (DME), and other products and services that the companies manufacture.

If you need help determining which program is right for you, ask your doctor’s office for the name of the manufacturer of your treatment.
