Fund Definition

Assistance with the prescription drugs and biologics used in the treatment of ovarian cancer.

Grant Utilization

HealthWell estimates that patients use an average of $2,440 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.

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.

  • This is a Medicare Access Fund. In order to qualify for assistance through this fund, you must have Medicare. The Foundation will refer patients without Medicare 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 Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is a growth of abnormal malignant cells that begins in the ovaries. According to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance (OCRFA) ovarian tumors can be benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Malignant cancer cells in the ovaries can metastasize directly to other organs in the pelvis and abdomen or through the bloodstream or lymph nodes to other parts of the body. Ovarian cancer is the number one cause of gynecologic cancer deaths. Over 22,000 new cases are diagnosed each year and 50% of those diagnosed are age 63 or older. Source: Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance (OCRFA)
