Our financial assistance increases medication adherence and quality of life

Financial costs keep many underinsured people from getting the treatments they need—and taking their medications as prescribed. In our recent survey, over half said that before receiving financial assistance from PAN, they had skipped doses or taken smaller amounts of their medication due to cost.

The inability to pay for critical treatments not only reduces adherence to treatment. It also causes stress and reduces quality of life.

Our impact goes beyond financial assistance

In addition to helping people directly with financial assistance, we also partner with leading patient advocacy groups to provide education and support services for people with a range of serious health conditions. And, we work to advocate on behalf of patients to help bring long-term solutions to the complex problems of today’s healthcare system.
