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.
"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."
"During the most stressful health issue I've ever dealt with, the PAF gave me hope. Being able to have someone who could take the complicated insurance issues out of the equation was immensely helpful. I was so worn out from my illness and the surgery denial that the thought of having to understand the ins and outs of my insurance plan well enough to fight them was more than I could bear... having the PAF on my side made all the difference!"
"Words cannot express how grateful I am to the PAF for all the help I received. On the day I received the call from my PAF case manager I was so worried and overwhelmed, I struggled with the answers to very simple questions. She was very patient, professional and caring but firm, she didn't give-up on me. I was encouraged by her positive and fast response to my financial situation."
