The needs of our patients guide everything we do here at the PAN Foundation. From our daily work, it’s clear that the demand for safety net programs continues to grow as the burden of out-of-pocket costs for prescription medications increasingly falls on patients. Here’s an overview of the people we assisted across the country in 2018.
Total patients assisted
Average grant amount
Under 65: 17.7%
Over 65: 82.3%
Patients with life-threatening, chronic and rare diseases often require expensive specialty medications that can be challenging, if not impossible, to afford.
Our nearly 70 assistance programs offer grants for those with Medicare or commercial insurance.
The people we serve are underinsured—with the majority living under 200% of the Federal Poverty Level, earning less than $24,280 for a single-person household in 2018.
We serve patients across all 50 U.S. states and overseas territories.
