National Kidney Foundation of Florida’s Hawthorne Patient Assistance Fund
The National Kidney Foundation of Florida’s Hawthorne Patient Assistance Fund will provide short-term financial assistance to qualified kidney transplant recipients to meet the cost of their kidney transplant related medications (immunosuppressant and prophylaxis drugs), while they seek out other longer-term solutions.
A qualified patient applicant must:
- be a kidney transplant recipient
- be uninsured or under-insured
- be a Florida resident and
- complete a Patient Assistance Fund application
Approved patient applicants are eligible to receive assistance of up to $1,000 per month, with a lifetime maximum of $3,000, paid directly to their pharmacy of choice.
The Hawthorne Patient Assistance Fund is exclusively for costs of transplant related medications (immunosuppressant and prophylaxis drugs). It will not provide assistance for other charges, transplant related or otherwise, including, but not limited to, physician charges, hospital charges, laboratory services, surgical costs, living expenses, travel expenses, or insurance premiums.
All applications must be submitted by the patient’s social worker affiliated with a Florida transplant center.
