Empowering Underserved Patients to Access Vital Osteopathic Medical Treatment

The Viola M. Frymann Patient Assistance Program

Bridging the Gap in Osteopathic Care

In a nation where too many individuals with chronic illnesses are forced to forgo essential medical care due to barriers such as unaffordable healthcare, inadequate insurance coverage, or financial constraints, the Viola M. Frymann Patient Assistance Program stands as a beacon of hope. 

Our program is dedicated to breaking down these barriers and ensuring that all individuals, regardless of their financial circumstances, can access the transformative benefits of osteopathic medical treatment. We believe that every person deserves the opportunity to experience the healing potential of osteopathy, and we are committed to making that vision a reality.


At the Viola M. Frymann Patient Assistance Program, we are committed to breaking down financial barriers and ensuring that every individual, especially those facing chronic or life-altering diseases, has access to the life-changing benefits of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT). Our mission is to provide grants for free or reduced OMT care, offering a lifeline to those who might otherwise forgo essential treatment due to financial constraints.


Our unwavering mission is to reduce financial obstacles for underserved patients and those battling chronic or life-altering diseases. As an independent, non-profit organization, Osteopathy’s Promise to Children is dedicated to ensuring that no patient, whether a child or adult, goes without crucial OMT because they cannot afford it. Inspired by Dr. Viola M. Frymann’s mandate, we’ve been helping individuals lead healthier, more fulfilling lives since 2009.

Programs and Results

The Viola M. Frymann Patient Assistance Program is powered by Osteopathy’s Promise to Children (OPC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit established in 1992. Our focus is to address the needs of underserved children and adults who would otherwise be unable to access vital osteopathic medical treatments. Our vision is simple: no underserved patient suffering from chronic disease should ever go without OMT because of financial limitations. To date, we’ve awarded assistance to over 1,632 patients across various disease areas.
