Pediatric Assistance Fund

More than 660 Children Strong!

The HealthWell Pediatric Assistance Fund® is specifically designed to provide financial assistance to eligible families so their children can start or continue critical, often life-saving medical treatments, they desperately need. This unique fund assists children 18 years old or younger living with chronic or life-altering conditions that their families are struggling to treat due to cost.

Meet Karis Who is Living with Type-1 Diabetes

“There are no vacations from being a parent and there are no vacations from being a parent of a T1D child. During that week there were no thoughts in my mind about how much the test would cost or how much it will cost to stay in the hospital. I wasn’t wondering if the hospital was in-network or not (thankfully they are!). Those types of questions just don’t come up when your child’s health is in question. I would never want money to factor into my daughter’s health care. I’d sell my house and everything I own if I had to.”
