What Is Thyroid Cancer?
Thyroid cancer exists when there is a malignant tumor or growth in the thyroid gland—the butterfly-shaped gland at the base of the neck. It is the most common type of endocrine cancer and, in fact, the number of thyroid cases has been increasing in recent years. Thyroid cancer can occur at any age, even in children.
The five-year survival rate is high for localized thyroid cancer, but if it metastasizes to other parts of the body, the outlook may not be as rosy, especially for the rarest and most dangerous type of thyroid cancer—anaplastic thyroid cancer.
What Medications Are Prescribed for Thyroid Cancer?
Thyroid cancer treatments include surgery, hormone therapy, radioactive iodine, radiation, and sometimes chemotherapy. Medications used in the treatment of thyroid cancer include:
Patients who have been treated successfully for thyroid cancer typically will need to take thyroid hormones for the rest of their lives following surgical removal or irradiation of the thyroid gland.
What Patient Assistance Does Simplefill Provide for Thyroid Cancer Patients?
We know how important it is for patients to have an uninterrupted supply of the medications they need to take long-term. That can be a significant financial burden for the uninsured, the underinsured, and even people with private health insurance. Our aim is to ease the financial stress and improve quality of life for thyroid cancer patients who are finding it difficult, if not impossible, to pay for costly medications or meet high copays.
Simplefill connects patients being treated for thyroid cancer with the patient assistance programs offered by manufacturers of medications prescribed for thyroid cancer patients. We identify the best programs for each of our members, ensure that they meet eligibility requirements, and manage the application and enrollment process for them.
