The Patient Access Network Foundation acknowledges that the inability to pay for essential medical care is not just a significant problem for the uninsured, but also for many people who have health insurance. Rising premiums, deductibles, co-pays, and coinsurance prevent many people from being able to afford the necessary treatment they need. Once approved, the PAN Foundation pays for up to one year of treatment with options for renewal.https://www.panfoundation.org/find-disease-fund/
