KHP Care Coordinator Helps Patient Get $6,000 for Needed Medications

KentuckyOne Health Partners Outpatient Care Coordinator, Sarah Evans, MSW, reached out to see if she could learn why a patient was not taking prescribed Asthma medications. A conversation with the patient quickly identified the reason – the two prescriptions cost $500 per month and the patient simply was unable to afford the medications. Evan’s researched resources available and was able to help the patient apply for assistance through the Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation. Because of Evan’s support, the patient was approved for a $6,000 per year prescription card to cover these needed medications.
