Non Clinical Services
The challenges for patients living with chronic medical conditions or illnesses are not limited to clinical care. HPC’s patient-centric comprehensive system of care gives patients access to important non-clinical and administrative services that assist with issues relating directly to the patients’ medical conditions and their treatment therapies.
HPC’s wraparound patient care includes our team of professionals skilled and experienced in the often complex administrative and non-clinical aspects of the specific disease states that HPC provides therapies for. These resources play key roles as members of our personal HPC Care Teams.

HPC Patient Assistance Program
HPC will assist our patients in the enrollment/qualifying process of the various patient assistance programs. These services help patients find the financial resources needed to live with chronic illnesses or conditions and a way to satisfy the expensive co-payment/deductibles.
Some of the programs include the Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation and Patient Services Inc. (PSI) which are both nationally known, non-profit charitable organizations that provides a “safety net” for patients to alleviate some of the financial burden due from expensive premiums, high deductibles, and co-payments. Other non-profit organizations programs are utilized as well as the man factor co-pay assistance programs.
