Patient Assistance Programs
A great new resource from the NHF:
“While the ACA’s implementation did many great things to provide access to healthcare coverage for the hemophilia and related bleeding disorders community, affordability still remains an issue for many. NHF’s Public Policy Team is often asked about resources available to assist patients with paying their premiums or out-of-pocket costs. In response to your inquiries, we have developed this document detailing patient assistance programs that remain available to members of the bleeding disorders community. Note the "accurate as of" date in red at the top right-hand corner. As changes are made to any of the programs listed, we will do our best to update the Patient Assistance document, and make the most recent version available to you.
“We have mentioned in previous updates that some insurers are not accepting third party assistance for qualified health plans (QHPs) purchased in the health insurance marketplace. The list currently includes certain insurers in Oregon, Montana, Idaho, New York, Nebraska and Louisiana. Therefore, it is possible that consumers will not be able to use an assistance program if they are enrolled in one of these plans. ”

Each summer, RMHBDA invites affected families living in Montana and Wyoming to attend a weekend retreat. The weekend is packed full of education, bonding, and fun! For the parents and teens, we will have teambuilding programming led by our guest, hemophilia leadership expert, Pat Torrey and some time to relax with other families. This is a great opportunity to learn from and share experiences with one another. We also have many great activities planned for our campers including arts & crafts projects, field games, and educational sessions for children with bleeding disorders and their siblings. Infusion classes will be offered from our HTC.
