Why Refer Your SCI Patients to NTAF?
The most commonly asked question addressed to our patient services department is, “How will I pay for my my uninsured expenses?” No doubt, you are asked the same question.
Your patients are facing a formidable health challenge and at the same time, one that is invariably accompanied by a lifelong financial challenge.
NTAF helps patients, their families and friends organize grassroots fundraising campaigns and guides them through the process with materials and support. NTAF also helps patients identify possible sources for financial aid.
Funds sent to NTAF in honor of patients are deposited into regional restricted funds, allowing contributions to these funds to be tax deductible. NTAF assures fiscal accountability and appropriate distribution of funds for medically-related expenses. NTAF issues checks weekly to pay for bills and requests for reimbursement. Funds raised through NTAF supplement and fill gaps left by insurance coverage, without jeopardizing coverage.
Fundraising has proven to be a successful option for many patients and families. To be considered by NTAF for a restricted fund, a patient must fill-out an application. This application must be completed and signed by the patient, family member or guardian.

Even though a patient may have adequate insurance, many related expenses are not covered. Many patients recovering from a traumatic spinal cord injury should consider fund raising.
