Improving patient access to healthcare

The inability to pay for essential medical care is a significant problem for people who have health insurance, but are underinsured. Rising deductibles, premiums, co-pays and coinsurance prevent many people from being able to afford the critical treatment they need.

The PAN Foundation’s mission is to help underinsured people with life-threatening, chronic and rare diseases get the medications and treatments they need by assisting with their out-of-pocket costs and advocating for improved access and affordability. The following position puts patients first in our complex healthcare system, and can help them access treatment at a price they can afford.
