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.
"We are extremely grateful for the assistance the PAF provided. It was very difficult to find anyone who could assist us- there is no State Ombudsman,and the State Insurance Commission, Medicaid, and other groups were unwilling or unable to advise us. We finally found the PAF through AARP, and we've already recommended it to others."
“I was greatly relieved to hear that costs for the medication addressing my cancer were going to be covered by your foundation. It’s simply wonderful that such a resource is available for those with serious conditions.”
"I received a call from my case manager, who has subsequently become my guardian angel. She was warm and cordial and that was a great relief. We spoke for a while and she asked me a few vital questions. She said I was approved for $7,500. That was one of the most joyous days I’ve encountered in a long time. In short it was a miracle. A lifeline was given to a 68-year-old man living with HIV on Social Security. I am so grateful to her and PAF. I can’t tell you what a relief today brought me. I just wanted to express my gratitude immediately."
