Pfizer Hemophilia Connect: New Resources, Better Accessibility


Part of my work providing educational resources for the last 25 years to the bleeding disorder community is to remind families from time to time of the many great offerings that help us cope with a chronic disorder. I encourage you to read the below to learn more about what Pfizer has to offer the hemophilia community.

New Resources – For over 19 years, Pfizer has been a part of the hemophilia community. Pfizer understands the challenges that come with living with a bleeding disorder, and we are committed to helping improve patient lives and the lives of their caregivers. Now, a group of Pfizer Hemophilia employees is dedicated solely to providing support to the community: the Pfizer Patient Affairs Liaison. Your Pfizer Patient Affairs Liaison is available to help patients and caregivers access the support and information they need from Pfizer. 
Better Accessibility – Pfizer Hemophilia Connect, a one-stop destination designed to provide easy access to all of Pfizer’s hemophilia tools and programs. The Pfizer Hemophilia Connect support team is dedicated to working with patients, their caregivers, and healthcare providers or pharmacies to connect them to helpful Pfizer tools and programs based on their individual needs. 

Pfizer Hemophilia Connect can be reached Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM ET.

Financial Support Programs Offered By Pfizer

There are a lot of great programs available to people in our bleeding disorder community. I’ve been sharing some of them recently. Here’s another great one from Pfizer!
Managing hemophilia is complex. Patients and caregivers face
medical, emotional, social and financial challenges. Understanding therapy is
just one part of the equation, Pfizer strives to provide support beyond science
and innovation. The company offers many educational resources and financial
assistance programs for eligible patients who infuse with Pfizer Hemophilia
Recombinant Factor products. 
·      
Factor Savings Card Program provides financial
support to eligible patients to help cover out-of- pocket co-pay, deductible,
and coinsurance associated with their Pfizer factor costs. Eligible patients
can save up to $5,000 annually. The Card is not health insurance and will only
be accepted at participating pharmacies.
·      
RxPathways is a comprehensive assistance program
that provides eligible patients with a range of support services, including
insurance counseling, co-pay assistance and access to medicines for free or at
a savings.
·      
Pfizer Trial Prescription Program allows
eligible patients new to Pfizer factor products to receive a one-time supply up
to 20,000 IU at no cost.
To learn more about these programs, visit the financial
support page on Hemophilia
Village
. On this site you’ll also find tips and resources to help you and
your family navigate the various challenges that can arise at different life
stages. Another great way to stay up-to-date on the support provided by Pfizer,
and to hear from others in the community, is to join the conversation on the Our Hemophilia Community Facebook page.

Great Book I Just Read
Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir [Kindle]
Dave Mustaine and Joe Kayden


Sometimes called the founder of thrash metal, Mustaine shares his troubled and abusive childhood, his calling to music in the 80s, his short foray as a founder of Metallica, his sudden ouster, and his inspiration to form Megadeth, one of the top thrash and heavy metal bands of all time. Mustaine was driven to create, recreate, fight others and destroy himself with drugs. That he is alive is a miracle. Burning through 17 different band members in a four piece band, Mustaine is not easy to deal with. Here he is candid, acknowledging his eternal grudge against Metallica and his own abrasive personality. Meeting his wife turned his life around, though not enough to stay off drugs. Finally, in a surprise ending, he finds peace and sobriety. I only wish the book could have delved as much into his creative process (how did he write such amazong songs?!) as it did into his drug usage and rehab.
Four/five stars.
