Meet Yvette, a PAN Program Representative, who shares with us a little about herself and how working at PAN has exposed her to the devastating impact of high out-of-pocket costs.

What motivated you to join PAN’s call center team?

Discovering that PAN helps people who can’t afford their co-pays was mind blowing to me. Looking at the number of people we help still amazes me. Knowing that the work I do positively impacts so many people is fulfilling. 

What questions do you get most often from providers?

Most of the providers need help with submitting claims. So most of the questions I get are directed towards claims processes.

How do you describe your work to people who don’t know about PAN?

I describe my job as very satisfying. Before I started working for PAN, I was not well informed about the financial cost of healthcare and how people struggle as a result. After joining PAN, I gladly tell people about the importance of this issue.

What are three words you would use to describe yourself?

Honest, outspoken and funny.

What are your tips for having a great phone conversation with patients or providers?

Be ready and calm. Have a positive mindset. Listen attentively. Speak slowly and clearly.
