Good Days Foundation for Chronic Illness

Good Days is a non profit organization that helps patients with specific conditions to receive treatment that would otherwise be unaffordable. Good Days has given assistance to over 450,000 patients, and provides four different avenues for assistance.

First, Good Days has a copay assistance program. They will help cover the out of pocket costs for approved medication after your insurance.

Second, they have a travel assistance program. Sometimes the best treatment options are not close to home and require travel. That is where Good Days come in. They will help pay and coordinate your travel accommodations when medically necessary. Third, Good Days offers premium assistance for those who need help paying their monthly medical insurance premiums.

Lastly, they offer diagnostic testing assistance in order to obtain an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
