Emergency Financial Assistance Program
HFM’s Program Social Worker will work in conjunction with you and your treatment center social worker or other health care provider to understand your unique needs and see if you meet the criteria for our financial assistance program.
In order to qualify for the program:
- You, or a family member living in your household, must have a hereditary bleeding disorder.
- You must be a Michigan resident.
- You must not have received financial assistance from HFM in the past twelve months (special circumstances will be reviewed on a case by case basis).
- The first step in the application is to contact your hemophilia treatment center social worker or hematologist’s office to discuss your need. Your HTC social worker must submit the referral on your behalf. If you do not receive treatment at an HTC please contact HFM directly at the number below.
The financial assistance program supports temporary financial emergency situations such as (but not limited to) eviction and utility shut off. Each situation is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Availability of the program is subject to the status of the financial assistance program fund.
If you have any questions please contact Kaite Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-292-5267.

If you are uninsured or underinsured with your dental coverage, we may be able to help.
We understand that our community faces challenges obtaining dental care to meet unique and individual needs. HFM has partnered with Cascade Hemophilia Consortium to offer free or low cost dental care to those who need it.
*To maintain your coverage you must visit the dentist two times during the calendar year for regular teeth cleanings.

Medical Identification Tags
HFM offers a one-time medical identification tag for community members with a bleeding disorder. We understand the importance of wearing a medical ID bracelet or necklace. It provides much needed information for medical responders should you be unable to speak for yourself as a result of a medical crisis or accident. Please contact Ashley Fritsch, Delta Dental & Medical ID Assistant, by talk or text at 734-328-9717 or by email to email@example.com for more information about the ordering process. NOTE: Expect an 8 week delivery time.
Facing a new diagnosis can be overwhelming. We provide educational opportunities, community events, and resources for people with bleeding disorders and their family. We always suggest that you speak with your health care provider regarding any specific questions regarding your diagnosis and treatment plan. We invite you to explore our website to find out more about programs and events that we have coming up and other resources that might support you. Know that we are always a resource for you. Please call and speak to Laura Olson, Office Manager, at 734-544-0015 or firstname.lastname@example.org to get connected with the Foundation and to receive a welcome packet full of important information.
