Financial Support Programs Offered By Pfizer

There are a lot of great programs available to people in our bleeding disorder community. I've been sharing some of them recently. Here's another great one from Pfizer!

Managing hemophilia is complex. Patients and caregivers face medical, emotional, social and financial challenges. Understanding therapy is just one part of the equation, Pfizer strives to provide support beyond science and innovation. The company offers many educational resources and financial assistance programs for eligible patients who infuse with Pfizer Hemophilia Recombinant Factor products. 

·       Factor Savings Card Program provides financial support to eligible patients to help cover out-of- pocket co-pay, deductible, and coinsurance associated with their Pfizer factor costs. Eligible patients can save up to $5,000 annually. The Card is not health insurance and will only be accepted at participating pharmacies.

·       RxPathways is a comprehensive assistance program that provides eligible patients with a range of support services, including insurance counseling, co-pay assistance and access to medicines for free or at a savings.

·       Pfizer Trial Prescription Program allows eligible patients new to Pfizer factor products to receive a one-time supply up to 20,000 IU at no cost.

To learn more about these programs, visit the financial support page on Hemophilia Village. On this site you’ll also find tips and resources to help you and your family navigate the various challenges that can arise at different life stages. Another great way to stay up-to-date on the support provided by Pfizer, and to hear from others in the community, is to join the conversation on the Our Hemophilia Community Facebook page.

Great Book I Just Read
Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir [Kindle]
Dave Mustaine and Joe Kayden

Sometimes called the founder of thrash metal, Mustaine shares his troubled and abusive childhood, his calling to music in the 80s, his short foray as a founder of Metallica, his sudden ouster, and his inspiration to form Megadeth, one of the top thrash and heavy metal bands of all time. Mustaine was driven to create, recreate, fight others and destroy himself with drugs. That he is alive is a miracle. Burning through 17 different band members in a four piece band, Mustaine is not easy to deal with. Here he is candid, acknowledging his eternal grudge against Metallica and his own abrasive personality. Meeting his wife turned his life around, though not enough to stay off drugs. Finally, in a surprise ending, he finds peace and sobriety. I only wish the book could have delved as much into his creative process (how did he write such amazong songs?!) as it did into his drug usage and rehab.
Four/five stars.
