Great things are going on at RMHBDA!
October 10 — ONLINE
Rocky Mountain Hemophilia & Bleeding Disorders Association announces our Annual Montana and Wyoming UNITE WALK, benefiting those suffering from bleeding disorders in Montana and Wyoming communities.
The 9th ANNUAL RMHBDA UNITE WALK for bleeding disorders has gone virtual! We strive to support the health and well-being of our community. Therefore, our UNITE for Bleeding Disorders Walk will be virtual this year due to COVID-19. Our virtual walk will take place on October 10, 2020. Please stay tuned regarding more specifics and details relating to our first virtual walk. We are sorry we won’t see all our walkers in-person this year!
Remember, 100% of all donations raised at our walk fundraiser stay in Montana and Wyoming. Funds from our walk are used to accomplish our mission to find better treatments and cures for bleeding disorders and to prevent the complications of these disorders through education, awareness, advocacy, and research.
Once you’re signed up, it's time to build your team by inviting family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to join you. Together you can start fundraising for RMHBDA to make a difference in your community. Since we are virtual this year, you have the ability to walk your way. Gather your team together and walk at a local track, trail, or around the neighborhood. RMHBDA needs your support more than ever this year! We are deeply grateful for your support during these unusual and challenging times.
Questions about the walk? Please contact Brad Benne at 406-586-4050 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Patient Assistance Programs
A Great Resource from the NHF
“While the ACA’s implementation did many great things to provide access to healthcare coverage for the hemophilia and related bleeding disorders community, affordability still remains an issue for many. NHF’s Public Policy Team is often asked about resources available to assist patients with paying their premiums or out-of-pocket costs. In response to your inquiries, we have developed this document detailing patient assistance programs that remain available to members of the bleeding disorders community. Note the “accurate as of” date in red at the top right-hand corner. As changes are made to any of the programs listed, we will do our best to update the Patient Assistance document, and make the most recent version available to you.
“We have mentioned in previous updates that some insurers are not accepting third party assistance for qualified health plans (QHPs) purchased in the health insurance marketplace. The list currently includes certain insurers in Oregon, Montana, Idaho, New York, Nebraska and Louisiana. Therefore, it is possible that consumers will not be able to use an assistance program if they are enrolled in one of these plans.”
