Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF) is a national 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization which provides case management services and financial aid to Americans with chronic, life threatening and debilitating illnesses.
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.Call Co-Pay Relief directly at 1-866-512-3861
"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."
"My case manager did an excellent job in helping me resolve my issue allowing me access to my medication. I believe having PAF call did so much more than what I was to achieve."
"I’m 66 years old and I was diagnosed with stage IV bone metastasized prostate cancer in July of 2014. I have been through Chemotherapy, Radiation and number of chemotherapy oral drugs. My doctor has told me that he has run out of options. I found a new hospital and they had a lot of treatment options and was able to help me with resources to help me cover the cost of treatment. PAF was one of the resources, they helped me fill out the application and was able to tell me right away they were able to give assistance with copays. This new found treatment and assistance from PAF gave me and my family new hope to keep up the fight on cancer."
