During this time of extremely high call volume, our team is working diligently to respond to inquiries as quickly as possible on the day they are received. 


If you have not received a response from our team or your submitted documents show as pending in your portal, please know these are in queue to be reviewed in the order they are received. Submitting multiple emails, portal messages, or phone calls adds time to the review process for our team and results in additional delays in our ability to respond to inquiries.  


To help us better assist you, please utilize one of the following options: 1. Visit your respective patient, provider, or pharmacy portal to enroll, re-enroll, or check grant status. It takes approximately 10 minutes to apply on average, and your application is acted on in real time: https://healthwellfoundation.my.salesforce-sites.com/patients.  2. Email grants@healthwellfoundation.org if your inquiry cannot be answered via the portals. 3. Request a callback through our interactive voice response system and a representative will respond to your inquiry on the same day it is received (note, this may be outside of normal business hours). 


We understand the importance of timely and complete responses and serving you is our number one priority. Please help us help you by submitting one inquiry only.  


Thank you for your patience during this time.

Fund Definition

Assistance with the prescription drugs and biologics indicated for the treatment of cystic fibrosis.

Grant Utilization

HealthWell estimates that patients use an average of $2,830 during their 12-month grant period for this disease area.

Consider Premium Assistance

Under this fund, HealthWell can assist with premium costs. Medicare supplemental policies can help with cost shares related to many aspects of your health care. Using a HealthWell grant to cover premiums may be a better option than treatment-specific cost shares.

About Our Cystic Fibrosis Treatments Fund

HealthWell’s Cystic Fibrosis Treatments Fund is designed to assist eligible people living with cystic fibrosis with cost-shares associated with CF-specific treatments. In addition, HealthWell is also able to consider assisting with the full cost of hypertonic saline solution, nebulizers paired with treatments, and certain handsets. We are committed to supporting the CF community and the established guidelines around our covered product list are meant to focus on the areas of greatest need for the majority of people living with CF. We understand there are additional areas to be addressed and, over time, it is our hope to be able to expand our coverage even further.

Please note that we are not able to assist with special requests outside of our covered product list at this time.

Do I Qualify?

HealthWell bases eligibility on an individual’s medical, financial and insurance situation. To qualify for HealthWell’s assistance, applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Please make sure that HealthWell currently has a fund for your diagnosis/indication and that your medication is covered under that fund by visiting our Disease Funds listing. If we do not have a fund that currently covers your diagnosis, please check back as we frequently open and reopen programs as funding becomes available. The Foundation is able to help patients receiving treatment for indications for which we currently have an open fund. We can only assist with medications that have been prescribed to treat the disease/covered diagnosis. You will be asked to provide the Foundation with the patient’s diagnosis, which must be verified by a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant’s signature. The patient must receive treatment in the United States.

  • To qualify for assistance from HealthWell, you must have some form of health insurance (private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, TriCare, etc.) that covers part of the cost of your treatment. The Foundation will refer patients without prescription insurance to other programs, such as manufacturer patient assistance programs.

  • HealthWell assists individuals with incomes up to 300-500% of the Federal Poverty Level. The Foundation also considers the number in a household and cost of living in a particular city or state. If you believe you qualify for assistance, you may begin the application process here.
  • If you are receiving treatment in the U.S. and have met the eligibility criteria as listed, you are ready to apply! Please note that you will be asked to provide a Social Security Number in order to create a grant. This information is gathered to eliminate duplicate applications and is kept secure and confidential.



About Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients. Source: Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
