The Los Angeles County Patient Financial Assistance Program

California Health Collaborative

Grant: $10,000

As the regional contractor for California’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program, the California Health Collaborative (CHC) provides support for low-income, underserved communities residing in Los Angeles County throughout the continuum of breast and cervical health care. The Los Angeles County Patient Financial Assistance Program is an adjunct to California’s breast and cervical cancer early detection program (Every Woman Counts) and the State’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program (BCCTP). With a grant from Tower Cancer Research Foundation, the program will serve low-income, underserved breast and/or cervical cancer patients that need financial assistance in order to improve treatment compliance and long-term survival. The proposed program’s mission is to assist breast and/or cervical cancer patients struggling with the costs of treatment, as well as ancillary services such as transportation, utilities, childcare, and food vouchers, that are necessary for low-income patients to complete recommended treatment services. These efforts seek to reduce the financial burden placed upon those diagnosed with breast and/or cervical cancer.
