Applying for transportation grants

You must have a current co-pay or health insurance premium grant to be eligible. There are two easy ways to apply for transportation grants: check your eligibility and apply online through your PAN portal account or call us at 1-866-316-7263, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET.

Wait lists

If your disease fund is closed, you can sign up for the wait list. When the fund opens, we’ll contact you right away.

Before signing up for the wait list, check the fund’s eligibility criteria to make sure you qualify. The wait list does not guarantee eligibility, so checking your eligibility in advance can avoid delays when the disease fund opens.

You can also sign up for a FundFinder account. Making an account lets you browse a list of over 200 financial assistance programs, including the PAN Foundation. You can then follow any fund you want to get notified as soon as assistance is available.

Providers and pharmacies, we provide more details about how you can help your patients with wait lists.
