Office of Inspector General (OIG) Advisory Opinion

The Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (OIG) issued an advisory opinion, #04-15, to PAF in October 2004, the second such opinion offering guidance to an independent, non-profit charitable foundation providing patient assistance for co-payment, co-insurance and deductibles for prescribed pharmaceutical products. The opinion has been modified two times (2008, 2015) with the most recent again affirming that PAF’s Co-Pay Relief Program is a bona fide independent, non-profit charitable program. Advisory Opinion #04-15 and both modifications are available through the links below.
