One Rare Condition Changes Your Whole Perspective

For a patient with a rare disease, the journey can be long and frustrating, and the costs staggering. A correct diagnosis can take years. And more than 50% of rare-condition patients are children, so managing a complex condition takes a toll on the whole family.

Your Plan’s Financial Risk Is Real

The skyrocketing costs of medication to treat rare conditions could be catastrophic for your plan. With prevalence on the rise, and new therapies being introduced, the risk is high that your plan may suddenly need to cover one of these medications for an employee or plan member.

30 million people in the U.S. are living with a rare condition4 — equivalent to the number battling diabetes.5 While significant resources have been devoted to conditions like diabetes, the market still lacks adequate solutions for rare conditions.
