PAN honored by National Association of Specialty Pharmacy

The National Association of Specialty Pharmacy (NASP) named the PAN Foundation as their 2023 Strategic Channel Partner of the Year this week, announcing the award at their annual meeting and expo.

“For nearly two decades, the PAN Foundation has provided a vital safety net for people who are underinsured and need financial assistance to cover their out-of-pocket costs for prescription medications,” said Amy Niles, PAN’s Chief Advocacy and Engagement Officer, who accepted the award on PAN’s behalf. “Our collaboration with NASP and specialty pharmacists across the country has allowed us to connect more patients with the support they need and deserve. We are honored to receive this recognition.”

The NASP Strategic Channel Partner of the Year Award, which is peer-nominated and reviewed, is given annually to an organization that provides a service or solution to facilitate the delivery of high-quality, cost-effective specialty pharmacy care.

In selecting this year’s awardee, NASP considered organizations that demonstrated a strong understanding of the specialty pharmacy business model, excellent customer service, innovative collaboration, and above all, a commitment to improving the lives and patient journey for the people they serve.
