Shortly after an application is submitted, patients will receive a letter from CareASSIST informing them of the status of their application. A copy of that letter is also sent to the healthcare provider on the form. Complete applications are usually processed within 2 business days.
Approved patients may remain enrolled for up to 12 months. If longer assistance is required, they may reapply on a yearly basis. Patients with Medicare Part B with no supplemental insurance coverage who qualify for the CareASSIST Patient Assistance Program will need to reapply at the beginning of each calendar year.
