PSI Patient Coalition


In 2008, Patient Services, Inc. formed the Patient Services Patient Coalition. The Government Relations Department oversees all of the coalition's advocacy activities.

Partner Coalitions

The Patient Services Government Relations Department organizes and participates in advocacy coalitions with our sister organizations and industry partners that champion important public policy issues that positively affect our patients. These vital connections between like-minded groups bring invaluable strength to our message and advocacy efforts on behalf of our patients.

PSI Patient Coalition: Volunteer Patient Advocacy for Individuals

The most important component of the Patient Services Patient Coalition* is the patients! We need your help to get the word out about the issues that are important to you as a community. Individual patients and their families volunteer on behalf of the coalition every day. They attend advocacy events, participate in legislative mailings and call campaigns, and work as grassroots advocates in their states. Make your voice heard and join today.

 * Participation in the Patient Services Patient Coalition is completely voluntary and will have no effect on the level of financial assistance that you will receive from PSI.
