The CARE Program

The CARE Program

Coverage, Assistance, Resources, and Education related to your health insurance.

By listening to the community, Shire created the CARE program to help all hemophilia community patients proactively manage their health insurance situations.

CARE is a comprehensive program designed to help the hemophilia community proactively manage their health insurance situation. It is intended to give patients the Coverage, Assistance, Resources, and Education information related to their health insurance, to help them take control of their healthcare needs.

As a CARE member, you will be better prepared to tackle your insurance situations by using the CARE benefits such as communicating 1-on-1 with skilled professionals, educational series materials, and electronic communication resources. In addition, patients enrolled in the CARE Patient Assistance Program can also utilize CARE benefits.

Shire knows that navigating the health insurance landscape can be complex and challenging at times. By listening to the hemophilia community, Shire has created CARE, a program that is open to all hemophilia patients, regardless of their current treatment or insurance coverage.

The CARE program assists the hemophilia community in achieving their goals for access to coverage and treatment.
