How to find financial assistance for specialty medicine

Financial assistance for specialty medicine

Humana Specialty Pharmacy® understands that the high cost of specialty medicine can be overwhelming, which is why we help more than 77% of our patients find financial support for their treatment. In 2017, our patients found more than $137 million in patient assistance funds.*

Our team of financial assistance specialists helps our patients find and apply to the programs that they may qualify for. They also provide guidance on how to complete the forms and accurately file them with each program.

We have relationships with more than 200 funding sources, including non-profit foundations, charitable organizations, and drug manufacturers. Some of the non-profit foundations we commonly work with include the Patient Advocate Foundation, The Assistance Fund, and Good Days (also known as Chronic Disease Fund). Medicare beneficiaries on a limited income may qualify for Extra Help, a government program that helps pay for Medicare Part D prescription drug costs.

Some drug manufacturers offer patient assistance programs or coupon cards for patients who may not qualify for government-funded health coverage. These resources include the AbbVie Patient Assistance Foundation, Arch™ Patient Assistance Program, and Pfizer RxPathways®.

If these programs don’t fit your needs, there are additional resources that may be able to find you a program that does. The Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA) has access to more than 475 assistance programs and may be able to connect you with one that you qualify for. RxAssist is a patient assistance directory which can help you find the program that is right for you.
