FAQs

  • Q: If I use a mail-order pharmacy, can I still save money on my eligible pancreatic enzymes?
    A: Yes. You can use your loyalty card every time you refill your prescription and save money on your copay.
  • Q: What is the Savings Request Form?
    A: The Savings Request Form is something you use only if the pharmacy does not process your claim with the loyalty card. Fill out the Savings Request Form and mail, fax, or email it with a copy of the pharmacy receipt using the contact information listed on the form. Be sure to complete all sections, as incomplete information will delay reimbursement.
  • Q: Help! I am having trouble logging in to the LIVE2THRIVE website. What do I do?
    A: If you forgot your user ID and/or password, you can recover your lost credentials.

Moving out and away from your parents is a big step. Whether it's across town or a few states away, getting your own place takes some time getting used to. You're in charge of a lot of things now, from grocery shopping to cable bills and, most importantly, managing your CF care on your own. This may be a good time to transition to adult care. If you're moving far, finding a new CF care team may be needed. Here are some tips for living on your own1,2:

What I've learned from living on my own

Conor Reid is a 19-year-old college student with CF who recently completed his freshman year on campus. In between acing his exams and making new friends, Conor learned a thing or two about living on his own:

  • Stay organized. Have a binder, calendar, dry erase board, or mobile app with the following:
    • All your medications, doses, and when you should take them
    • Insurance contact information
    • Copies of health insurance cards
    • Names and contact information of your CF care team, local pharmacy, mail-order pharmacy, etc
  • Get into a routine. This will help you stay on track with treatments and taking medicine
  • If you're moving in with a roommate, be open with them about CF. Explain the treatments you do every day and answer any questions they may have. The more open you are, the more comfortable it will be
  • Clean! Clean! Clean! Staying on top of dishes and dusting isn't fun, but will help you stay healthy and keep your place germ-free
