Having a rare disease is difficult. Adding in the complex care required to treat or manage that disease and figuring out how to pay for it makes a rare diagnosis even harder. NORD’s Batten Disease Patient Assistance Program offers eligible individuals diagnosed with Batten Disease financial support to pay for out-of-pocket healthcare costs that are directly related to the care and treatment of Batten. These Patient Assistance Programs for individuals diagnosed with Batten disease have been expanded. Eligible individuals may now apply for financial support with health insurance premiums and copay expenses as well as Emergency Relief (critical, non-medical needs). Eva’s Butterfly Wishes for rare children may also be available. Learn more below.
