The cost of cancer care affects many patients, including those with health insurance. Typically, the cost of treating blood cancer is significantly higher than the costs associated with treating many other cancers, and patients with blood cancer are often forced to pay thousands of dollars per year in copays and other cost-sharing. These costs often continue for years due to extended drug therapies that require daily adherence in perpetuity and extensive follow-up care even for patients who experience remission. LLS, the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting blood cancers, is advocating for patients and working with stakeholders across the healthcare system – doctors and hospitals, policymakers and legislators, insurers, pharmacy benefit managers and drug makers – to find ways to lessen the burden for patients so they can receive the critical care they need.

 

Dr. Cara James for the Consortium for Medicaid and Children’s Health Operations Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to discuss how CMS is helping eligible children, teens and adults obtain health coverage through Medicaid and CHIP.

There is a strong connection between academic performance and a student’s health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly one out of three children aged 5 to 17 years missed one or more school days due to illness or injury. With health coverage, you can ensure your children are better equipped to learn so they realize their full academic potential by staying healthy throughout the year.

For uninsured kids in families with limited incomes, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) offer eligible children and teens up to age 19 access to immunizations, regular check-ups, eye exams, dental visits, mental health services, prescriptions, and other care that improves their ability to fully participate in classroom and after-school activities.
