PAN Facts & Stats
Every day, the PAN Foundation helps thousands of people living with life-threatening, chronic and rare diseases who have health insurance, but are unable to afford the out-of-pocket costs associated with their critical medical treatments.
- » We’ve helped nearly 1 million underinsured patients with over $3 billion in co-payment assistance since 2004. Patients trust us to provide personal and compassionate assistance that eases their financial and emotional burdens. With our help, patients no longer have to choose between their critical medications and keeping a roof over their head.
