Financial Assistance


The AAHS understands the financial burden on patients due to testing and continued treatment of sleep disorders.  To help ease this burden, the AAHS has compiled below a list of valuable financial assistance resources that may benefit patients with sleep disorders.


National Non-Profit Organizations Offering Assistance
There are many national non-profit organizations offering assistance for individuals with specific disorders or diseases; unfortunately, many of these organizations do not offer assistance for patients suffering from sleep disorders.  However, there are a number of organizations that do offer this assistance.  Each of the organizations listed below offer programs that may benefit patients with sleep disorders.  Please visit each of these resources to determine if you qualify for their programs.


 National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) offers co-pay and premium assistance programs for patients with Narcolepsy.  

Partnership for Prescription Assistance connects patients to assistance programs for specific medications, which may include specific sleep medications.

  General Tips
  • Check with your physician to see if there is a generic version of your medication.
  • Prices for medications vary by pharmacy.  Compare pharmacy prescription prices in your area to be sure you are paying the lowest price possible.
  • Review your medical policy to ensure you have chosen the best plan for your needs in terms of prescription coverage.
  • Contact your insurance provider to see if they offer a prescription pricing tool as a benefit of membership.
  • For equipment, compare pricing on renting vs. buying equipment.
