CRITICAL SAFETY NET

Non-profit charitable assistance is a critical safety net for many patients and their families, particularly those living with rare, chronic, complex, or life-threatening conditions.

Opposes any effort to curb Access

PSI opposes any effort by public or private payers to curb access to lawful charitable assistance.

codify protections to charitable copay and premium assistance

Policymakers should codify protections to charitable copay and premium assistance, including reestablishing the ability of patients to use charitable assistance programs without discrimination and have charitable assistance count towards their out-of-pocket maximum, and formalizing the current regulatory framework for charitable assistance by transitioning from OIG opinions to a formal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rule or codified law.

Access to to coverage through Government Programs

In general, patients who have access to insurance through a government program such as Medicare or Medicaid should access coverage through those programs rather than turning to charitable assistance in the private insurance market
