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.
"You were most kind and courteous and helped me greatly with my expenses traveling to the hospital and to other facilities."
"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."
"As a person with two chronic illnesses, Crohn’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis, life gives you challenges. PAF reviewed my meditations and what co-pay assistance is available to defray my cost. They show local, state, and county benefits, such as fuel assistance, utilities shut-off protection, transitional assistance with food, medical bills, etc. PAF is a direct patient advocate from eligibility, enrollment and to approval. This is a wonderful organization. They decipher to mountains of directions and get patient to the help available. My sincere thanks."
