Our patient aid application is currently CLOSED.

We are able to support these grants through the generosity of others, and are hard at work to secure funding so that we can continue providing Patient Aid Grants to all those in need. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to providing more updates soon.

13. Diagnosis/ICD-10 codes: Type of leukemia must be indicated on the application and the ICD-10 code must match the diagnosis.

14. Priority will be given to patients that have expressed a financial need based on the treatment they will undergo requiring 100+ total inpatient or outpatient days for treatment

15. Priority will also be given to those that may require travel of longer distances to receive their therapy, incurring higher expenses due to the length of travel, cost of parking or even multiple overnight stays during treatment.

16. Priority will be given to those patients in a situation of little or no insurance. We recognize that having insurance coverage can still present very costly attributes like high deductibles and prescription copays. We also recognize that certain treatments are not covered by insurance, such as experimental medications and clinical trials. Through a proper description of their financial situation in the narrative of the application, patients can best present their needs, even while having insurance.

17. If you have a question that has not been answered here, please feel free to contact the Leukemia Texas Program Manager at (214) 265-7393 or PatientAid@leukemiatexas.org
