Your gifts fill a critical need.
Four out of 10 Americans with health insurance coverage cannot afford their copays, premiums and deductibles. Your donation helps us fulfill our mission — to reduce financial barriers to care for underinsured patients with chronic or life-altering diseases. You can help us help them.
We put 100% of your donation to work.
In 2017, we are proud that HealthWell spent 99% of every dollar it received from all sources on patient grants and services and only 1% on administrative costs.
The HealthWell Foundation is recognized as one of America’s most efficient charities by these organizations:

You can make an extraordinary difference in the lives of others by making a planned gift to the HealthWell Foundation. Remembering the HealthWell Foundation in your will or trust is one of the most meaningful gifts you can offer to those who struggle with chronic illness and need the financial support for their lifesaving medications when their insurance simply isn’t enough. Including the HealthWell Foundation in your estate plans is simple. Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed. Here is HealthWell’s official bequest language:
“I give and bequeath the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate (or a percentage of my estate, or a dollar amount) to the HealthWell Foundation, based in Germantown, Maryland, for its general purposes.”
Bequest for a Restricted Health Fund
“I give and bequeath the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate (or a percentage of my estate, or a dollar amount) to (Health Fund) of the HealthWell Foundation, based in Germantown, Maryland.”
If your bequest is restricted for a particular purpose, we ask that you incorporate a “savings clause” to accommodate changes over time in the needs of the Foundation: “In the event that such use shall, in the judgment of the President of the HealthWell Foundation, become unnecessary or impracticable, I direct that my gift shall be devoted to such purposes as the President, in his or her sole discretion, shall determine, keeping such use as close to my intent as possible.”

Such programs may be open to spouses of employees, retirees and spouses of retirees. Please contact your Human Resources Department to find out whether your company offers a workplace giving or matching gifts program. For assistance, please email us at email@example.com.

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 320,000 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.
