Don’t let financial hardship keep you from the treatment you need.
Susan G. Komen® Greater Iowa is proud to offer assistance to those struggling with the financial burden of breast cancer treatment through the Komen Greater Iowa Treatment Assistance Program. This program bridges the gap for underserved individuals who are actively undergoing breast cancer treatment.
With this program, we aim to help those who are facing financial challenges by providing limited financial assistance, education and support services to low-income, underinsured or uninsured breast cancer patients throughout our Greater Iowa service area. Financial assistance is available for breast cancer treatment expenses such as oral pain medication, anti-nausea medication, oral chemotherapy/hormone therapy, child care/elder care, transportation to and from treatment, lymphedema care and supplies and durable medical equipment.
Funding through this program helps patients of any age who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, at any stage of the disease. Financial assistance is granted to patients who meet predetermined eligibility criteria. Individuals must have an active breast cancer diagnosis, be in active treatment and have income at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Line (FPL).
