Disease Funds in Development

Four out of 10 Americans with health insurance coverage cannot afford their copays, premiums and deductibles. Your donation helps support our mission — to reduce financial barriers to care for underinsured patients with chronic or life-altering diseases. We are always looking for ways to expand our programs. The funds listed below are currently in development. HealthWell has developed OIG-compliant definitions for each fund, and they are awaiting initial donations. For further information, please contact Alan Klein, our Chief Development Officer, at

About HealthWell’s Funding

In addition to individual contributions, HealthWell receives donations from a number of sources both within and outside the health care industry. These include pharmaceutical manufacturers, biotech companies, foundations and other health care organizations. The HealthWell Foundation is entirely independent. It is not controlled or influenced by any of its donors.

The assistance that HealthWell provides to patients is based on objective criteria that we apply consistently and in accordance with all applicable laws. As a copayment assistance foundation, HealthWell operates within a complex regulatory framework. The regulations governing the health care industry, as well as a favorable Advisory Opinion that the Office of Inspector General (OIG) issued to HealthWell, set standards that HealthWell must meet to stay in compliance with applicable laws. According to the OIG opinion, HealthWell may not disclose the identity of its donors. This ensures that we are able to operate independently and in the best interest of our patients.

Thanks to our dedicated donors, we offer patients an improved chance at positive health outcomes and proper disease management — a goal that we are powerless to achieve alone. Through the generosity of all our donors, HealthWell has already provided financial assistance to more than 930,000 patients who, in all likelihood, would have been unable to afford the critical treatments they needed. It is our sincere desire to help as many patients as possible afford the medical treatments they need and deserve.
