Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation

The inability to pay for essential medical care is not just a significant problem for the uninsured, but also for people who have health insurance. Rising deductibles, premiums, and co-insurance prevent many people from being able to afford the critical treatment they need.

The Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation is an independent, national 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to helping federally and commercially insured people living with chronic, critical and rare diseases with the out-of-pocket costs for their prescribed medications. Partnering with generous donors, healthcare providers and pharmacies, PAN provides the underinsured population access to the healthcare treatments they need to best manage their conditions and focus on improving their quality of life. Since its founding in 2004, PAN has provided more than 500,000 underinsured patients with nearly $1 billion dollars in financial assistance, through over 50 disease-specific programs.
