A new patient financial assistance program has become available for individuals with hemophilia. The Assistance Fund (AF) is a charitable foundation that was created to provide eligible patients with chronic diseases help with paying medication copayments, coinsurance, deductibles, insurance premiums and incidental medical expenses.

First established in 2009, the AF currently manages more than 30 funds, each designed to cover FDA-approved medications for the treatment of specific diseases. To learn more about the program, including eligibility criteria and frequently asked questions, visit the AF website.

“For people with hemophilia, even routine activities, like going to the dentist, can be daunting,” said Mark P. McGreevy, President and CEO, The Assistance Fund. “The opening of TAF’s Hemophilia Financial Assistance Program will provide financial support to patients so that they can better afford the treatments they need to help minimize bleeding episodes and improve their quality of life.”
