Lyme-TAP is a new patient assistance program helping patients with financial hardship pay for diagnostic Lyme testing who would otherwise be unable to afford testing.
The Lyme Test Access Program (Lyme-TAP)is a nationwide patient assistance program offered by Rotary Club of Ferndale Foundation (501c3) in coordination with Lyme Patients Assistance Group to provide assistance for initial Lyme-related lab tests to patients who demonstrate true financial need.
If approved, you may be reimbursed for up to 75% of your out-of-pocket costs of testing from a qualified CLIA/Medicare approved laboratory of your choice. Funds are limited & are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Children under 18 years of age are given priority. The intention of this program is to help as many patients in need as possible. It is not intended to cover insurance deductibles or to cover patients not truly in financial need.
This nationwide assistance program was made possible by a very generous donation from IGeneX Inc., a CLIA/Medicare licensed laboratory. Any CLIA/Medicare licensed laboratory may be selected for testing: you do not have to use IGeneX for this program.
