This year is off to a difficult start for people who seek financial assistance for pulmonary hypertension (PH) treatment. For much of December and January, organizations that typically offer copay assistance grants have closed their PH funds.

The Pulmonary Hypertension Association is monitoring the funds daily and will notify the community when funds reopen.

In the meantime:

  • Contact your PH specialist as soon as you know you might have trouble paying for your medication.
  • Call the manufacturer of your PH medication. Regardless of your insurance type, some pharmaceutical manufacturers have short-term assistance programs to help while you wait for a nonprofit grant. Assistance program phone numbers are listed here.
  • Sign up for the PAN Foundation’s Fund Finder to receive email or text notifications as soon as a PH copay assistance fund opens. Call 866-316-7263 or visit the site to sign up.
