PANF (Patient ). This organization provides assistance in the form of reimbursement of for cetain medications covered by your insurance carrier - like synagis. You can do nearly all of the application on the phone - takes 5-10 minutes. They'll mail or fax it to you and your doctor's office (prescribing doctor) and you and your doctor can fax it back or mail it back. You have to provide proof of income - most recent tax forms and payroll stubs. If your income has changed since your last income tax, don't worry. You're allowed to provide that information. We don't qualify for anything that has income guidelines - except Minimum Alternative Tax on our Income Tax (Yippie). But, we did qualify for this. They are paying ALL of our out of pocket expenses in 2010 for synagis. Our pharmacy will collect the money directly from PANF, so we don't have to come up with the money first. It only takes about a week for the approval once they receive your forms and the doctor's copy. It's pretty quick if you use the fax.
I've heard some of you say that you're paying as much as $300 per shot this year. Please give them a call. You'll probably qualify.
(7263). Just tell them that you want to complete an application for reimbursement for co-pay/deductable related to Synagis.
They also have a website www.PANfoundation. org - Check it out. They also help with other very expensive meds. Every little bit helps.
