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.

Most Americans Say They Can Afford Drugs but the Sick Still Struggle

According to an August Kaiser Health Tracking Poll, it appears that most Americans (72%) can afford their prescription drugs. However, one in four Americans surveyed indicate difficulties, including more than four in ten people who are sick. Others facing difficulties paying for their prescription drugs include those with low incomes (33%) or those taking four or more prescription drugs (38%).

KFFPollAmong those with insurance, prescription drug costs rank among a number of other health expenses, with 11 percent saying their prescription drug costs is their most burdensome health care cost, while 17 percent say it is the deductible, 14 percent say it’s their health insurance premiums, and 44 percent say that paying for health care and health insurance is not a financial burden. For those with lower incomes, paying for prescription drugs tops the list, with 17 percent reporting it is their greatest financial burden when it comes to health care costs.

Most of Americans (62%) surveyed in the poll say that prescription drugs developed in the past 20 years have made lives of people in the U.S. much better, including 42 percent who say a lot better. Do you agree? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
