Anyone living with HIV who has or is suspected of having cancer. If you or someone you know is living with HIV and has or is suspected of having cancer call us at 504-517-8985.
Call 504-517-8985 and our Program Coordinator and Clinical Trials Coordinator will contact you to obtain records, discuss insurance coverage and set up an appointment to determine if you qualify for one of our clinical trials. We also offer stipends to offset travel costs through our patient navigation program.
Will my insurance cover my medical costs if I live outside of Louisiana and am eligible for one of your clinical trials?
You would need to visit our facility and be evaluated by our providers to determine eligibility for one our trials. If it is determined you are eligible, our Clinical Trials Coordinator would provide you with the necessary information to make an informed decision. If you choose to enroll, the Affordable Care Act Statute states the following:
Routine patient costs include all items and services that the payer would cover for a patient not enrolled in a clinical trial. Items and services are not routine patient costs if they are investigational, solely for data collection and analysis purposes and not for direct clinical management of the patient, or for a service inconsistent with the established standards of care for the patient’s diagnosis.
Payers may require a qualified individual to use an in-network provider for the approved clinical trial if that provider is a trial participant and will accept the patient. Payers are not required to provide out-of-network benefits unless such benefits are part of the patient’s coverage or the approved clinical trial is only offered outside the patient’s state of residence.
Our Medical Benefits Specialist can review your coverage prior to your visit in order to make an informed decision about your health visit.
