Finding transportation to healthcare services can be a challenge for patients—especially those living with health conditions that require frequent visits to the doctor’s office or pharmacy.
We created the Treatment Transport program to make rideshare services more affordable for patients who struggle with securing reliable transportation to get the care they need.
The Treatment Transport program was developed by the PAN Foundation in partnership with Roundtrip—a healthcare technology company dedicated to improving health outcomes by increasing patient access to transportation.
Beginning on June 3, 2019, our Treatment Transport program will provide grants to reduce the cost of rideshare trips booked through the Roundtrip app or call center for qualifying patients.
The Treatment Transport program will support patients being treated for any disease for which PAN provides assistance. To view a list of covered diseases, click here.
The criteria for PAN's Treatment Transport program are:
- » The patient must be getting treatment for a disease that PAN covers.
- » The patient must have Medicare health insurance that covers his or her qualifying medication or product.
- » The patient’s medication or product must be listed on PAN’s list of covered medications.
- » The patient’s income must fall at or below 500% of the Federal Poverty Level.
- » The patient must reside and receive treatment in the United States or U.S. territories (U.S. citizenship is not a requirement).
At this time, we are providing ridesharing assistance to people with any of the 60 diseases that PAN covers. If PAN does not cover your disease and you need transportation support in getting to and from your doctor's office or pharmacy, we encourage you to fill out this form. Your feedback will help inform future programs.
Yes. You can still apply for ridesharing assistance, even if your disease fund’s co-pay, premium, or travel program is currently closed on PAN’s list of covered diseases.
Enrollment for the pilot begins on June 3, 2019 on a first-come, first-served basis. Please sign up to receive updates when we open enrollment.
On June 3, you may call us to apply for assistance at 1-833-662-3030. Enrollment is limited to patients and their caregivers. Please note, we have a limited number of grants available. If you are unable to receive a grant but you need assistance, please let us know by filling out this form.
Patients or their caregivers must book rides directly through Roundtrip’s app or call center.
Our Treatment Transport program offers subsidies to reduce the cost of rideshare trips booked through Roundtrip’s app or call center. Patients will receive up to $10 off the cost of each trip to their doctor’s office or pharmacy.
- » For example, if a trip is $20, we will cover the first $10 and the grant recipient will be responsible for the remaining $10.
- » In the case where a trip is $10 or less, the grant recipient will not be responsible for any cost.
Please note that when using the Roundtrip portal, you may see a $14 subsidy listed. This extra $4 covers an administrative fee that PAN pays on behalf of the patient.
