My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for PAN Foundation, Washington, DC, USA
I was experiencing a prolonged asthma exacerbation that required inhaled steroids. My insurance would not cover $220 for a one month supply. I am retired and living solely on my social security. Rent had recently increased. I could not afford the medication for one month let alone as a monthly recurring medication. Alternative medications that would be more affordable were not available. The doctor's office and pharmacy could not suggest any alternative medications or any sources for assistance. I am not eligible for SSI. I was searching the internet for some source for financial assistance for this medication when I discovered PAN Foundation. I didn't know if I would qualify but I completed their forms. I had nothing to lose. To my relief I was approved that same day. After providing the pharmacy with the necessary information, I picked up my medication the following morning. It is now two and a half months later and my asthma is well controlled. The shortness of breath and incessant coughing are gone. Without PAN Foundation I would not have been able to afford the medication and would still be struggling to breathe and coughing constantly. I cannot thank the people at PAN Foundation enough.
