Our Alliance Partners
Many patients often need support that goes beyond financial assistance.
That’s where our diverse network of alliance partners comes in.
Working Together to Support Patient Communities
Patients often need support that goes beyond financial assistance. At HealthWell, we value our relationships with leading patient advocacy groups and national health care organizations. Together, we focus on total patient care, not just a condition. We work with these groups to reach the patients who need us the most and share resources to support patient communities. We refer patients to one another, and, together, we raise awareness for various diseases, especially during national health observance months.
If you work for a non-profit and would like to learn more about partnering with HealthWell, please email us.

Network of Alliance Partners
As we continue to expand our programs across a variety of disease areas, it’s important to identify alliance partners who share our vision to ensure that no patient goes without health care because they cannot afford it.

Support from Our Alliance Partners
In the words of our alliance partners…
“We applaud the HealthWell Foundation for recognizing the paramount need for frontline health care workers who are going to heroic measures to save the lives of those impacted by COVID-19 by providing a vital financial resource that will enable them to obtain critical behavioral health services.”
“Hyperoxaluria is a group of rare diseases that require life-long medical treatments. For many living with the disease, treatment options may be unattainable due to cost, which can ultimately lead to an irreversible, potentially life-threatening, situation for the patient. We are honored to partner with the HealthWell Foundation to spread the word about the new fund and to be able to share this critical financial resource with our community.”
“Facing a neurodegenerative disease like Huntington’s is overwhelming, but the additional diagnosis of psychosis magnifies the complexity of treatment. Financial support programs, such as this new fund from HealthWell, are vital tools for families facing the burden and cost of care.”
