Our Mission

Helping patients in need receive the treatment they need

Paying for essential medical care is a significant problem even for people who have health insurance. While many programs exist to assist people who are uninsured, the rising costs of healthcare, deductibles, premiums and co-insurance prevent many insured people from being able to afford the essential care they need.

This is where the Macaluso Compassionate Care Foundation (MCCF) steps in. Our mission is to provide financial assistance to insured patients who would otherwise not be able to afford treatment for a life-threatening, rare or chronic condition. By making it easy for them to apply for assistance and by relieving the financial burden of costly treatment, MCCF allows patients (and their caregivers) to focus on improving their condition and quality of life.

Filling a dire need

MCCF is an independent 501(c)(3) organization that partners with generous donors, healthcare providers and pharmacies to help pay for FDA-approved medicines when federal or commercial insurance benefits do not fully cover the costs. We are oriented to those who need treatment the most to survive a life-threatening or life-changing disease, but whose insurance benefits are insufficient. MCCF is grateful for the generosity of our benefactors, who make it possible for us to assist patients with various diverse diseases.
