HarborPath helps eliminate barriers to treatment for individuals living with HIV/AIDS
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1.2 million people are living with HIV in the United States. Of these individuals, almost one in eight are unaware of their infection. Better treatment options, including antiretroviral therapy, have made it possible to achieve suppression of the HIV virus, which can slow the progression to clinical AIDS. These treatments help improve the quality of a person’s life and make it possible for patients to manage HIV/AIDS as a chronic disease. Unfortunately, approximately 25 percent of people living with HIV/AIDS are uninsured and even more will experience a gap in health coverage at some point during the year, making continuity in medication therapy difficult.
The HarborPath portal streamlines the PAP application process for healthcare professionals and helps to remove barriers to prescription access for HIV/AIDS patients. HarborPath is:
Ensuring a safety net solution for uninsured individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Although there are health insurance options available through the Affordable Care Act, many individuals living with HIV/AIDS may experience gaps in health coverage. Missing doses or failing to fill prescriptions because of limited or no coverage may result in serious health consequences, or even death. HarborPath addresses this urgent need for access to medications.
Providing seamless transition between HIV/AIDS patient assistance coverage at critical times. Since HarborPath began serving patients on the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) in 2013, the portal program has grown to offer more options to meet critical needs during gaps in health coverage. HarborPath can help healthcare professionals quickly and efficiently apply for donated medications on behalf of the uninsured patient whether a patient is pending approval to receive medications through their state ADAP program, or is on an ADAP Waiting List.
Streamlining duplicative HIV/AIDS PAP application paperwork and pharmacy services. Healthcare professionals enter patient eligibility data ONCE into HarborPath’s secure, HIPAA-compliant portal to generate ONE application for multiple medications.
“I think HarborPath has truly changed the landscape with PAP programs through the pharmaceutical companies. HarborPath is a "one-stop shop" for most of our patients.”
