Demand affordable prices and better financial aid for Medicare patients who have pulmonary hypertension. Caring voice coalition was providing foundational grant assistance to Medicare patients who cannot afford their pulmonary hypertension medications for the entire 8 years I've been employed working in this disease state. The government has forced them to shut down leaving thousands of patients without financial assistance for their current pulmonary vasodilator medications that help elongate their life expectancy and alleviate some symptoms related to this disease. The government did not give any direction to patients who relied on caring voice Coalition for financial assistance and a lot of them are stopping their medication because they can't afford a 33% coinsurance of over $25,000 a month. With strict laws governing Medicare, recipients are not allowed to use the manufactured copay assistance, coupons or any other offered discount given by the pharmaceutical companies who makes the drugs therefore leaving the patient in a financial bind. Please share this petition and raise awareness. There are other grant organizations that have graciously stepped up but unfortunately the amount they offer is not enough to cover most coverage gaps or the part D "donut hole" as it is referred to. Once Medicare pts get into this coverage gap they are the forced to pay 100% of not only their pulmonary hypertension medications but their other regular medications as well. caring voice Coalition was giving patients $20,000 a year to help offset most of the cost of the out-of-pocket expense for patients on Medicare. And most of these Medicare patients are also on a fixed income which means they are already struggling to survive much less are they able to afford these very expensive meds. Please allow Medicare patients to receive coupons, discounts and manufacturers financial assistance programs.
