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.
"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 am a widow living only on my Social Security. Your staff members were kind and helpful - I don’t know what I would have done without you! PAF’s service made it possible for me to receive my medication. I will be glad to let people know about the Co-Pay Relief Program. You have given me a chance to go on.”
"You were most kind and courteous and helped me greatly with my expenses traveling to the hospital and to other facilities."
