PAN Foundation Launches COVID-19 Treatment and Prevention Fund to Help At-Risk Medicare Beneficiaries Pay for Treatment, Groceries and Other Critical Services

PAN Foundation, is an independent charitable organization dedicated to helping underinsured patients access critical medical care. Today they announced that it will offer financial assistance to Americans with existing medical conditions who have COVID-19 or are quarantined because of the virus.

Through this comprehensive fund, PAN will provide a $300 grant to qualifying Medicare beneficiaries with cancer, chronic or rare diseases who have also been diagnosed with COVID-19 or directed to self-quarantine by their healthcare provider or a government agency. Grant recipients can use the funds for treatment co-pays, prescription and over-the-counter medications, medical supplies and other important expenses related to COVID-19 prevention and treatment, including transportation to medical appointments and groceries, meals and food delivery services.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is a stark reminder of the importance of our mission to ensure that every American can afford the healthcare they need. While we don’t know the full impact of this outbreak, we’re dedicated to doing everything we can to protect and support the most vulnerable members of our society,” said PAN President and CEO Daniel J. Klein. “As Medicare beneficiaries and people with serious health conditions learn to cope with this rapidly evolving situation, we’re committed to providing assistance to help those who need it most so they can focus on getting better and worry less about the cost of care.”

The results of a recent poll by the Commonwealth Foundation highlight the collective worry of Americans about their ability to afford medical treatment: 68 percent of adults said that the out-of-pocket costs they might have to pay would be very or somewhat important in their decision to get treatment if they had symptoms of the coronavirus.

The COVID-19 Treatment and Prevention Fund is currently open for applicants who have annual household incomes up to 400 percent of the federal poverty level. Eligible patients can learn more about the fund on our website or by calling PAN at 1-866-316-7263 from Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET.
