COVID-19 Center

We’re working for you.

We know that it’s hard.  We work with patients and families who have chronic, debilitating conditions. Many people, especially those who have been served by the Patient Advocate Foundation, are lower income and need help on an ordinary day to access their medications. The coronavirus pandemic has created worst-case scenerio conditions for many people, and we’re here to amplify their voices in support of the care they need.

Want to help? Please consider donating to the Patient Advocate Foundation’s Covid-19 Recovery Fund. Patients diagnosed with the coronavirus will be granted funds that can be used for cost-of-living expenses.

Need help? You can look for resources and apply for aid at the Patient Advocate Foundation’s COVID Care Resource Center. 

As always, you can search Patient Advocate Foundation’s Resource Directory for anything you may need: financial support, transportation assistance, caregiver social support etc. 

A #highriskcovid perspective

We may be apart, but we're in this together. We'll be highlighting the stories of patients around the country throughout the pandemic. Read them in our blog.
