With or without insurance, pulmonary hypertension (PH) treatments can be costly. Fortunately, there are financial assistance programs that can help you cover your insurance and/or prescription costs if you qualify.
General Assistance Programs
Some organizations offer general or disease-specific financial assistance programs to help you cover your medical costs:
- Caring Voice Coalition Financial Assistance Program provides financial help to eligible patients. Caring Voice Coalition may pay all or a portion of a patient’s out-of-pocket expenses under the patient’s health insurance plan.
- The Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF) Co-Pay Relief Program (CPR) currently provides direct financial support to insured patients, including Medicare Part D beneficiaries, who must financially and medically qualify to access pharmaceutical co-payment assistance. The program offers personal service to all patients through the use of call counselors; personally guiding patients through the enrollment process.
Drug-Specific Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs) and Support Programs
Many pharmaceutical companies or specialty pharmacies sponsor drug-specific assistance programs to help patients navigate the reimbursement process.
PAPs are designed to make it as easy as possible to get your treatment by providing free or discounted drugs to low-income, underinsured or uninsured patients who meet specific guidelines. Manufacturers may also offer other types of general support programs, providing additional education, support and financial assistance.
