The financial burden of managing a bleeding disorder is enormous. Costs associated with a hemophilia and other bleeding disorders can affect the entire family’s budget. There are several resources that can help during difficult situations.
Asking for help is the first step
It is important to consult with multiple resources to help resolve your financial needs.
- Reach out to your local hemophilia organization - Some local chapters may have funds available to help families with immediate financial needs.
- Contact the nearest Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) – The social worker at the Hemophilia Treatment Center can help you explore the options available and may be able to aid you throughout the application process.
