Bethesda, MD (July 14, 2015) - The Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation has launched a new patient assistance fund for Medicare patients being treated for heart failure.

- Have Medicare insurance and it must cover the medication for which they seek assistance
- Reside and receive treatment in the United States
- Have a household income at or below 500% of the Federal Poverty Level (for example, $79,650 or less for a family of two).
Patients, or advocates and caregivers applying on their behalf, can apply for assistance using PAN’s online patient portal (www.panapply.org) or by calling 1-866-316-PANF (7263), 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday.
