Financial Assistance

California Specialty Pharmacy Patient Financial Assistance Program

According to Huffington Post, “a Harvard University study showed that medical expenses account for approximately 62% of personal bankruptcies in the US”, making it the number one reason for personal bankruptcy. At CSP, we understand that high cost medications and the copayments that accompany them can create major financial burdens for certain individuals. That’s why our dedicated reimbursement team ensures coverage does not become a barrier to patient care.

In 2015, CSP Financial Assistance Counselors helped patients receive more than $5.5 million in financial assistance through manufacturer support program and charitable organizations combined.

California Specialty Counselors will
