PAH Patient Assistance in 2018

telephone assistance

2017 is now behind us.  As 2018 begins there are some major changes in the landscape for patient assistance.  For many years Caring Voices Coalition has been a leader in assisting patients with their expensive medications.  However, this chapter is closing and we do not expect Caring Voices to participate in patient assistance going forward.  This has left many Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) patients in a dangerous position of not being able to afford their medications.

There are, however, a variety of sources for potential assistance that remain open to patients with PAH who need help paying for their medications.  Below is a list of foundations that support PAH patients.  They will be open to new patients at various times.  The best strategy for patients in need of help is to fill out applications with every organization. Some are currently accepting new applications and others are not.  Don’t give up, be persistent.
