Washington, DC, (January 9, 2018) - The Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation today opened a new patient assistance program for people living with hemophilia. Hemophilia is a rare, inherited bleeding disorder in which blood does not clot properly due to low levels of proteins called “clotting factors.” Qualifying patients are eligible to receive grants for the out-of-pocket costs associated with their hemophilia treatment insurance premiums.
“The PAN Foundation is excited to alleviate the financial strain of the out-of-pocket premium costs for people living with hemophilia,” said PAN President and CEO Daniel Klein. “Thanks to our generous donors, many patients living with hemophilia will be able to access the treatment they need to best manage their conditions and focus on improving their health and quality of life.”
Patients who qualify for the PAN Foundation’s Hemophilia Premium Assistance Program are eligible to receive $4,500 per year in financial assistance. Eligible patients must be getting treatment for hemophilia; must reside and receive treatment in the United States; must have health insurance; and the medication for which they seek assistance must be covered by their insurance and must be listed on PAN’s list of covered medications. In addition, patients must fall at or below 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Level.
Patients, or advocates and caregivers applying on their behalf, can apply for assistance using the PAN Foundation’s online patient portal (www.panapply.org), or by calling 1-866-316-7263, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.
