Pharmaceutical Services for Adults with Cystic Fibrosis

           Since 1990, the New Jersey State Organization of Cystic Fibrosis has administered a special state-funded program, “Pharmaceutical Services for Adults with Cystic Fibrosis.”  As more and more patients reach adulthood, they face increasing financial burdens and difficulty financing the high costs of living with cystic fibrosis.  In response to the increasing needs of adult patients, NJSOCF developed a plan for an adult program, now funded by the State of New Jersey. Services are available to New Jersey patients age 18 and over whose incomes meet state eligibility requirements.  Direct service components of the program include assistance with paying for prescription medication; medical equipment and supplies; nutritional supplements; and extra nutritious food. The program will also pay a health insurance deductible.  Adults from every county in New Jersey are currently enrolled in the adult program and new patients are always welcome to apply.
