Getting Help

If you need help with medical expenses:

However you contact us, please provide your name and address, and a phone number where we can reach you. You should hear from us within 2 business days.

Friends of Friends is able to help in small ways to pay for most medically-related expenses up to an annual limit per person. We make these payments directly to the providers and never to individuals; we cannot reimburse for payments already made by you.

We can help with prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, visits to health professionals, medical equipment or supplies, hospital and lab fees or transportation to treatment on the mainland.
