The Assistance Fund: Helps with Medical Out-of-Pocket Costs for MG Patients

Millions of people don’t have access to the medicines they need because they can’t afford them. The Assistance Fund believes nothing should stand between you and your treatment.

If you are eligible for support, we provide financial assistance to cover costs not paid by insurance. The Assistance Fund is an independent charitable patient assistance organization that helps patients and families facing high medical out-of-pocket costs by providing financial assistance for their copayments, coinsurance, deductibles, and other health-related expenses.

We have added patients diagnosed with myasthenia gravis to our program, and you can apply. We will work with eligible patients to help cover FDA-approved medications that treat myasthenia.

LEARN MORE by visiting The Assistance Fund website or call (855) 845-7608

Eligible patients will be a:

  • U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
  • Diagnosed with MG.
  • Prescribed an FDA-approved treatment for the disease.
  • Have prescription coverage for the prescribed treatment.
  • Meet financial eligibility criteria based upon household income and size.

Since our founding in 2009, The Assistance Fund has helped more than 160,000 children and adults access the treatment they need to stay healthy or manage a life-threatening, chronic, or rare disease.

Hot News: Apply for the Emergency Broadband Benefit

The FCC announced that on May 12, 2021, eligible households will be able to apply for the Emergency Broadband Benefit.

“Families in every corner of the country have been struggling to get online throughout this pandemic. For those families, we now say ‘help is around the corner.’ In less than two weeks, we will have a new way for disconnected Americans to access the internet to carry out their day-to-day life, so they can reach the virtual classroom, take advantage of telehealth, and seek new employment opportunities.” 

 

Beginning on May 12 households can apply in three ways: 

  1. Contact your preferred participating broadband provider directly to learn about their application process.  
  2. Go to GetEmergencyBroadband.org to apply online and to find participating providers near you.
