Resources for diverse communities

We’re committed to connecting patients with resources beyond financial assistance, with an intentional focus on supporting historically underserved communities.

Beyond copay assistance, we also commit to advocating for healthcare policy recommendations that improve health equity and address decades of systemic racial discrimination.

As we advocate for policy reforms and provide resources, we acknowledge how intersecting identities—based on culture, class, gender, language, race, religion—impact how patients experience and navigate our healthcare system.

Below are external organizations that provide specific support for historically underserved communities. We encourage you to explore as few or as many resources as applicable and learn more about our current partnerships with other patient-first organizations.
