Oct 30, 2019 3:30pm ‐ Oct 30, 2019 7:30pm


The session will arm clinicians with information to help them navigate and understand the financial burden people with CF and their families experience. As the treatment plans can be complicated and with the anticipation of the 'triple-combo', care center clinicians will need to be mindful of the financial burden families have related to medical expenses and social determinants of health and how these burdens impact decisions about their health care. This course will provide real, practical tips for addressing out of network needs, navigating appeals, trouble shooting, comparing health plans and the importance of people with CF having the best health insurance coverage available to them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe strategies for navigating common insurance issues.
  • Identify programs that provide financial assistance for CF medications and care.
  • ┬áSummarize financial burdens and challenges in the CF population.
