The Assistance Fund
The Assistance Fund
The assistance fund is a new program I found out about recently that helps hemophiliacs with copays, premiums, and other healthcare needs. As soon as I heard about this I signed up immediately. I figured if I could get reimbursed for my monthly premium that would help me out a lot financially. The sign up process is super simple as it only took me 5 minutes to complete. It's almost shocking how simple it is. The final page said congrats you have been approved. I was extremely sceptical because it seemed too good to be true. In a couple of days after I got a phone call of someone calling me to confirm some information and let me know I was approved and that I should expect a letter in the mail. Within the next week I received a debit card from PNC Bank that said The Assistance Fund at the top and the letter said the money would be deposited on this card. I was never really told what kind of documentation I would need to get the money added on the card, so I did my own research on their website and learned that they had a document uploader. I added every document that I thought they would need to prove my payment of my premium and assumed I would be good. Two weeks went by and no money was added to my account and nobody has contacted me. I decided to give them a call and they said they informed me that I was missing a document they needed. I wish they would have notified me of that, but nonetheless I uploaded it through their online system. Just because I was a bit angry I decided to also print out all the documents and mail it in to their business address. At this point they are behind about 4 premium payments but I'm going to stay on them to make sure this is a legit resource for our community. If it does work it's going to save me a lot of money each month and I'm sure we could all benefit from that.
It won't hurt to try. If you're interested in this program I listed some information below.
What do you guys think? Is this a legit resource for us? Do you have an experience with them?
