PAN Announces Higher Grant for Three Diseases
Washington, D.C. – Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation announced that it is immediately raising the grant amounts available to patients receiving copayment assistance for Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Multiple Myeloma and Myelodysplastic Syndrome.
The cap for Age-Related Macular Degeneration increased from $2000 annually per patient to $3000. Multiple Myeloma patients can receive up to $8500 annually, an increase of $2000 over the current amount. Patients with Myelodysplastic Syndrome can receive an additional $1000 per year, bringing that cap to $8500. PAN provides copayment assistance to eligible underinsured patients diagnosed with one of 21 chronic or cancer-related diseases.
“We are pleased to offer our patients more assistance in paying for their vital medications,” said PAN President Julie Reynes. “We know that every dollar makes a difference in patients’ ability to meet their health care and household expenses.”
PAN also announced wider eligibility for the new Kidney Transplant Immunodepressant (KTI) fund. Patients applying for PAN assistance for KTI can now have household incomes that are below 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), rather than 200 percent FPL previously required.
