PAF Co-Pay Relief Program:

Co-Pay Relief (CPR) program provides direct financial assistance for co-payments,co-insurance, or cost-sharing to qualified patients through funds dedicated to specific diseases. Funds are distributed on a first-come first served basis.

At the moment, the National Breast Cancer fund is closed however our Breast Cancer Health Equity Fund is open. The Health Equity Funds provide needed financial support to eligible patients living in the counties covered by the funds, which is verified using the zip code of the patient’s home address. All other eligibility requirements, and fund operations, are the same as our general funds.
