Patient Advocate Foundation Receives Significant Support to Aid Non-Squamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Patients through the Co-Pay Relief Program
Date:8/20/2012

HAMPTON, Va., Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF) is pleased to announce the receipt of a generous contribution that will have direct and immediate impact by allowing PAF to continue support to patients suffering with non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) within its Co-Pay Relief Program (CPR). PAF's Co-Pay Relief Program provides direct financial support for pharmaceutical co-payments to insured patients, including Medicare Part D beneficiaries, who financially and medically qualify, significantly reducing the financial burden associated with high medication costs. 

PAF is a national non-profit organization that provides sustained case management services to patients who are facing healthcare access issues as a result of their diagnosis of a chronic, life threatening or debilitating illnesses.  Since PAF's creation of the Co-Pay Relief division in April 2004, CPR has distributed more than $180 million in assistance to more than 86,000 patients who were unable to afford their pharmaceutical co-payments, thus ensuring better access to prescribed medications. Last year, the inaugural year for this disease fund within CPR, nearly 3,000 lung cancer patients suffering from this disease received funds to directly pay for their pharmaceutical co-payments.

"A debilitating or life-threatening diagnosis can be the most overwhelming experience a person may ever face in his or her lifetime. Coupled with high-cost pharmaceutical co-pay expenses, the journey can become significantly more challenging to manage," said Nancy Davenport-Ennis, founder and CEO of PAF. "Patient Advocate Foundation created the Co-Pay Relief Program in 2004 after receiving an increased number of patients seeking co-pay assistance for pharmaceutical drugs, so we are particularly pleased to be able to continue this assistance to lung cancer patients."
