Anne Hollingsworth, a funding supervisor for Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy, has witnessed an increase in patient need for financial assistance in her job helping patients secure funding for medications. “Five years ago, we had two or three staff people doing funding, now we are up to nine. PAN is one of the first organizations we worked with,” says Anne. “It’s very gratifying to be able to help patients who are in need of life-saving medications be able to access them through the assistance of organizations like PAN.”
Anne believes a differentiator for PAN is PAN’s efficiency. “The turnaround time is great,” says Anne. “When patients can access grants quickly, it makes it easy for us and takes a lot of the stress off patients. Everyone wins,” says Anne.
