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.

Mission Statement

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.

Vision Statement

We envision a nation in which everyone can get the healthcare they need.

About PAN

The Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation is an independent, national 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to helping federally and commercially insured people living with life-threatening, chronic 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 nearly 1 million underinsured patients with over $3 billion in financial assistance, through close to 70 disease-specific programs.

PAN has an administrative fee of only 5%. This means that $0.95 of every dollar PAN receives goes directly toward helping patients. For the last eight years, PAN spent less than one penny of each dollar it received on fundraising.
