Given the volume of grants that go unused in the PMO fund, we are requiring a first fill within 30 days of approval.  If there is no payment activity on the grant within this timeframe, the grant balance will be zeroed out.

Grant funds will not be specifically held for the patient and any future requests for payments will made based on availability of funding and cannot be guaranteed. Before moving forward with the approval process, please be sure you have a valid prescription for the patient that you are confident will be filled within 30 days of approval.

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:

  • 1.You are being treated for Post Menopausal Osteoporosis.

    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.

  • 2.You have Medicare.

    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.

  • 3.Your income falls within our guidelines.
    HealthWell assists individuals with incomes up to 400-500% 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.
  • 4.You are receiving treatment in the United States.

    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 Post Menopausal Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens bones, increasing the risk of sudden and unexpected fractures. Literally meaning “porous bone,” it results in an increased loss of bone mass and strength. The disease often progresses without any symptoms or pain. Generally, osteoporosis is not discovered until weakened bones cause painful fractures (bone breakage) usually in the back (causing chronic back pain) or hips. After menopause, bone resorption (breakdown) outpaces the building of new bone. Source:Cleveland Clinic
