Since I last wrote, the Caring Voice Coalition Board of Directors has evaluated all options available to our organization regarding financial assistance requests in light of the decision by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General to rescind our Advisory Opinion. After considering all options and our current circumstances, I deeply regret to announce that CVC will not open financial assistance for any disease fund in 2018.
We are grateful to have been able to assist thousands of patients suffering with numerous chronic illnesses and remain committed to fulfilling our charitable mission of improving the lives of patients with chronic illnesses.
While we are developing new ways to continue our charitable mission, I must urge you to seek out alternate resources from other patient assistance programs and take assistance where and when you can. Links to some of these resources can be found on our helpful resources page.
