Advocacy partners and coalitions

Stand with us

Our collaboration with coalitions, our alliance partner network, and other like-minded partner organizations ensures that our collective voice is stronger when we advocate for critical healthcare reform.

Partner with us


We work with leading patient advocacy and support groups to advocate for policy solutions that improve healthcare access and affordability for patients. Our work educates key stakeholders, including Congress, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and the administration, about the impact and urgency of healthcare reform.

All Copays Count Coalition 

The All Copays Count Coalition includes more than 60 organizations serving the interests of people with complex and chronic health conditions who rely on co-pay assistance to afford life-saving medications. A key focus of the coalition is removing barriers to care caused by co-pay accumulator policies.  

Medicare Access for Patients Rx 

Medicare Access for Patients Rx (MAPRx) is a coalition of organizations representing patients, family caregivers, and health professionals. Together, we are committed to safeguarding the well-being of patients with chronic diseases and disabilities who rely on prescription drug coverage through Medicare Part D. A key focus of the coalition is Medicare reform that will enhance access and affordability of treatment. 

Root Cause Coalition

The Root Cause Coalition is a nonprofit, member-driven organization comprised of more than 90 leading health systems, hospital associations, foundations, businesses, national and community nonprofits, health insurers, academic institutions and policy centers. Our common goal is to achieve health equity for every American.

Other patient coalitions 

We collaborate with other coalitions that represent the needs of patients with life-threatening, serious, and chronic illnesses to advocate for policies that will increase healthcare access and affordability.  

Alliance partners

People with serious health conditions—and their families and caregivers—need support beyond financial assistance.  

We partner with national patient advocacy organizations that offer help with the complex physical, emotional, and practical realities of life-threatening, chronic, and rare diseases. When patients come to the PAN Foundation for financial assistance related to a specific disease state, they can opt in to receive follow-up education and support services from a dedicated alliance partner.  

We also work with our alliance partner network on shared advocacy goals, bringing a cohesive and compelling voice to the affordability challenges faced by patients.
