Special Assistance

Managing a bleeding disorder can cause a financial strain on families.  Families may fall behind financially when a child has to be admitted to the hospital or a serious bleed causes the parent to miss days from work.  The Arizona Bleeding Disorders understands this and offers Emergency Financial Assistance to those families in need.  Assistance is available to active community members of the Arizona Bleeding Disorders. To be considered active, members must be in our database and have a family member with an identified inherited bleeding disorder.  Applicants must fill out the “Emergency Special Assistance Request Form” with all required documentation attached. It may be filled out and submitted online, faxed, mailed, or delivered to the AZBD offices.

Assistance is available for rent, mortgage and utilities.  Anything other than the previous mentioned must be approved by the Executive Director.

All requests are subject to approval by the Arizona Hemophilia Association and are contingent on funds being available.  Submission of request does not guarantee payment.

Patient Assistance Programs

While the ACA’s implementation did many great things to provide access to healthcare coverage for the hemophilia and related bleeding disorders community, affordability still remains an issue for many.  NHF’s Public Policy Team is often asked about resources available to assist patients with paying their premiums or out-of-pocket costs.  In response to many inquiries, they have developed THIS DOCUMENT detailing patient assistance programs that remain available to members of the bleeding disorders community.
