Are You On An Expensive Medication and Short OF Cash?

  • The PAN FOUNDATION uses donations to assist with a multitude of different diagnoses and the cost of medications: Diabetes, Parkinson’s, Cancer, and others.

  • PAN realizes 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 premiums, deductibles, co-pays and coinsurance prevent many people from being able to afford the critical treatment they need.

  • 58% of Americans have delayed or gone without essential medical care because of high out-of-pocket costs.

  • $8100 is the average amount Medicare beneficiaries with cancer, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, and hepatitis C spent on their medications in 2019.

  • PAN’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.

  • Partnering with generous donors, healthcare providers and pharmacies, they provide the underinsured population access to the healthcare treatments they need to best manage their conditions and focus on improving their quality of life.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:1-3.

Lots of times with diabetes, and other health problems, things get really depressing. What can we do?

  • Do the best you can, seek out your options and keep going.

  • Pray for wisdom and strength.

Unfortunately, some choices do not work out and others take time. Just because we want an answer. NOW, doesn’t mean we may have to wait. But with our GOD, things are never hopeless. We don’t always realize that God was right there putting us in the right place, having us to talk to the right person. We are never alone and should be patient, and unafraid, because He has the plan for us.


I found out recently about the PAN Foundation when a person on Medicare started on a new medication “to see if it might help their condition. ”The medication was $4000 per month and had to be obtained through a “specialty” pharmacy. When called, the pharmacy helped with drug discounts, leaving their cost at $1331.90 a month and gave them the phone number for the PAN Foundation. PAN asked less than 5 questions, then called the pharmacy for the rest of the information. In a week, they were told they would receive $6000 toward the cost of 6 months of medication. PAN pays all of months 1, 2, 4, and 5 and patient pays $665 copay months 3 and 6. That is for 6 months of medication and then Specialty pharmacy, along with PAN will work on assistance for the next 6 months.

Please let me know if I can answer any of your questions,
