A national 501 (c)(3) non-profit charity that provides direct services to patients with chronic, life threatening and debilitating diseases to help access care and treatment recommended by their doctor.
The PAF Co-Pay Relief Program, one of the self-contained divisions of PAF, provides direct financial assistance to insured patients who meet certain qualifications to help them pay for the prescriptions and/or treatments they need. This assistance helps patients afford the out-of-pocket costs for these items that their insurance companies require.
The program offers many sophisticated online tools to ensure the application process is as streamlined as possible for patients, providers and pharmacy representatives, including 24-hour web-based portals, electronic signature, document upload and bar code fax routing capabilities.
Co-Pay Relief patient assistance is purely donor-funded and money is dispersed to qualified patients while funds are available for each of the Diseases identified.
"My case manager started me down the path of applying for assistance and grants that would help me through this rough time. She directly helped me obtain Social Security Disability Insurance as well as co-pay assistance for my medications. Knowing someone out there who is familiar with resources is so reassuring."
"Not only did we face life threatening situations, but we were faced with tens of thousands in medical bills after our insurance company denied all claims from two separate hospital visits as due to pre-existing conditions. PAF patiently and thoroughly explained the appeals process, and then coached us through negotiation of bills from the hospital and more than a dozen other providers. They even contacted my provider to advocate on our behalf, adding credibility and professionalism to our ultimately successful negotiations. As a result we saw our total costs for all related bills reduced to about a third of the original amount."
"I was so anxious over losing my insurance and my case manager stayed with me through the ups and downs and made sure I was settled with solutions and a good plan." - Ruth, Missouri
