GERMANTOWN, Md. — April 19, 2022 — The HealthWell Foundation®, an independent non-profit that provides a financial lifeline for inadequately insured Americans, is pleased to announce that they will be attending Asembia’s 2022 Specialty Pharmacy Summit to be held May 2-5, 2022, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

HealthWell Foundation President, Krista Zodet, will be moderating the panel: Insights on the Role of Specialty Pharmacies in Patient Assistance on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, from 1:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m. During this timely discussion, foundation representatives will share best practices as they relate to the role of specialty pharmacies in applying for assistance on a patient’s behalf. Panel members will discuss the importance of providing accurate diagnoses and eligibility information, and the ethical responsibilities of pharmacies when enrolling their patients in assistance programs.

In addition, HealthWell will also be exhibiting at the Summit from May 2 – May 4, 2022. If you will be attending, we hope you’ll take a few minutes to stop by booth #425 to meet members of the HealthWell team and to learn about our programs and services to assist patients in need.

“As we slowly begin our return to pre-pandemic business activities, we are excited to have the opportunity to continue our participation in the Summit. For many years, HealthWell has considered the Asembia Specialty Pharmacy Summit a must-attend event,” said Krista Zodet, HealthWell Foundation President. “We are honored to be able to spread the word about our programs and to share best practices as they relate to foundation copayment assistance within the specialty pharmacy community. If you are attending the Summit, we hope you will join us for our panel and stop by our exhibit booth to learn how, by working together, we can better assist patients in need.”
