New Online Library Helps CF Patients Navigate the Challenges of Health Care Coverage
November 9, 2011
Cystic fibrosis patients and their families can now turn to a new, helpful collection of online resources when faced with health care coverage and reimbursement challenges. At last week’s North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference, the CF Foundation announced the launch of the Patient Assistance Resource Library, its latest program dedicated to providing the CF community with the information needed to gain and maintain coverage.
A range of useful information is now publicly available in the new online Library:
- Sample letters of medical necessity and prior authorization
- How-to guides for navigating common insurance obstacles
- Templates for insurance appeals and exception
- CF care guidelines
- Medical journal articles
- White papers for medical professionals
The Library’s contents are drawn from Foundation educational material as well as information from health care providers and industry partners.
“The CF Foundation is pleased to provide another tool to help patients and their families navigate the health care maze,” said Robert J. Beall, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Foundation. “We are dedicated to helping people with CF gain better access to the treatments they need to maintain and improve their health.”
