Financial help for factor and related products

 

Treatment for hemophilia includes medicine to replace a substance that makes the blood clot. This substance is called “clotting factor,” or just “factor.” Your child needs factor to treat bleeding or keep them from bleeding too much. They will need it for their whole life. Like many other medicines, factor and related products are expensive.

Many insurance companies pay for your child’s factor, or part of it. Your Hematology case manager will help you do the paperwork your insurance company needs for payment. However, factor and related products might still cost you something. This information is about programs that can help with the cost.

Programs to help pay for factor and related products

You have many options if you need help paying for factor and related products. Here is some basic information on programs that help.

  • You can get help if you have most types of health insurance. You do not qualify if you have federal or state health insurance, such as Medicaid or Tricare.
  • Each program has different requirements you need to meet.
  • Every program is different, and pays a different amount.
  • You need to apply for the program every year.

Below is a list of programs that can help pay for factor and related products. St. Jude does not recommend any specific program. The list only shows different places to look for help. Also, it does not show every program available. Ask your child’s Hematology case manager if you have questions.

Is financial assistance always available?

No. These groups only have a certain amount of money each year. No more is available after it is gone. So, you have the best chance of getting help if you apply early each year, for as long as your child needs factor or related products.

Programs for specific factor products

The doctor is the best person to choose the medicine for your child’s needs. Your child should not take a different type of factor or related product unless the doctor prescribes it. Only look for programs on this list that pay for your child’s current medicines.
