I know that this stuff is posted somewhere, but I've found a foundation that is NOT commonly listed and I want to at least TRY to get the info out there for those who might need it... The Humira coordinator at my GI's office didn't even know about this foundation, so I'm not taking it for granted that they're easy to find out about!

The Patient Access Network Foundation (.org) is a group that will provide up to $4000 a year in financial assistance for those of us who have "insurance coverage" that doesn't COVER diddly squat. It's not a miracle company, but it is an easy process to apply, and the people that answer the phones have been VERY helpful as I've been trying to switch their assistance from Remicade to Humira.

I'll leave it at that and let those who are interested check out their web page. I just know that people WITHOUT drug coverage qualify for assistance directly from the drug company, and those of us WITH 'coverage', no matter how crappy, are disqualified. Even with "coverage", copays can exceed $2000 which leaves people like me up S**T creek. Hopefully, PANF will at least throw me a paddle like they did with the Remicade!

Oh yeah - I almost forgot - PANF helps with things OTHER than crohn's too, like Ankylosing Spondylitis, and RA... just FYI.
