New Patient Assistance Program for People with Hemophilia
The Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation has opened a new patient insurance premium assistance program for individuals with hemophilia. PAN is an independent, national 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping federally and commercially insured people living with life-threatening, chronic and rare diseases with out-of-pocket costs for their prescribed medications. The program was announced in a PAN press release on January 9, 2018.
Since its establishment in 2004, PAN has provided nearly one million underinsured patients with over $2.6 billion in financial assistance through over 60 disease-specific programs, hemophilia being the newest. Patients who qualify for the PAN Foundation’s Hemophilia Premium Assistance Program are eligible to receive $4,500 per year in financial assistance. Eligible patients need to be residing and receiving treatment in the U.S., and have health insurance.
“The PAN Foundation is excited to alleviate the financial strain of the out-of-pocket premium costs for people living with hemophilia,” said PAN President and CEO Daniel Klein. “Thanks to our generous donors, many patients living with hemophilia will be able to access the treatment they need to best manage their conditions and focus on improving their health and quality of life.”
