CCFA is keeping members of the Louisiana community in our thoughts during this difficult time. Your well-being is our utmost concern and we understand that during a time of crisis, managing Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis can become even more difficult. We are reaching out to you to make you aware of some important resources for both insured and uninsured patients who might have lost their medications during the recent flooding:
Insured Patients (Private, Medicare and Medicaid): Most public and private insurance plans have Natural Disaster Coverage. However, because each plan is different, patients should contact their individual insurance provider for details.
Uninsured Patient: The Department of Health and Human Services sponsors the Express Scripts Emergency Prescription Program. To be eligible, patients must be uninsured and must live within the impacted zip code area that has been declared a state or federal disaster area. For more information, call the Express Scripts Emergency Prescription Program to complete an application: 855-793-7470.
If you have additional questions, please contact the IBD Help Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-694-8872 Monday – Friday, 9:00a.m. – 5:00p.m. EST.
