The Patient Access Network Foundation (PANF) is proud to announce the launch of its newest financial assistance program for patients being treated for Parkinson’s disease. The new fund will be one of nearly 60 disease-specific funds offered by the PANF, spanning programs for cancer, chronic illnesses and rare diseases.
PANF’s new Parkinson’s disease fund will help eligible individuals and their families by paying for the out-of-pocket costs of critical medications; thereby reducing financial barriers to treatment and hopefully improving the quality of life for many people living with Parkinson’s.
Patients who qualify for PANF’s Parkinson’s disease fund are eligible to receive up to $16,500 per year to cover costs associated with their medications. To qualify, applicants need to have insurance that covers the medication for which they seek assistance, they need to reside and receive treatment in the United States, and they need to have a household income less than or equal to 500 percent of the Federal Poverty Level.
For applications and eligibility questions, call 866-316-PANF (7263). To learn more, visit http://www.panfoundation.org/parkinsons-disease
