Emergency Assistance Fund
Patient Assistance Programs
There are a variety of programs sponsored by the Pharmaceutical Industry and others that support patients with financial needs. The following document outlines each of these programs and provide some details and contact information. Please review this material if you have a need for product support, or are having difficulties in securing sufficient funds for your factor needs.
To assist in the review and validation of applications for aid, we accept requests from Hemophilia Treatment Centers and their affiliated social workers. These individuals typically know the candidates, understand their current financial state, and are better suited to determine the severity of the need for emergency funds. These agencies then submit the individual’s application for emergency aid supported by proper documentation.
Follow-up calls may be necessary when information is missing or to discuss the specific case when the need is unclear. Individual requests without HTC support may also be considered. Individuals interested in applying for NEHA’s Emergency Assistance Fund should speak with their HTC social worker and ask for their assistance.
