As the COVID-19 Public Health Crisis continues, we continue to focus on helping patients through the hotline. Because hotline services are restricted to patients, for the time being, we kindly ask pharmacies, providers, and their staff to use our Pharmacy and Provider Portals. Please note that, given the high internet volume as our nation works and learns remotely, you may experience a delay in accessing our portals or while speaking with a HealthWell representative. If you have a question that cannot be answered by visiting the portal, please send an email to grants@healthwellfoundation.org. We appreciate your continued patience and look forward to continuing to serve you. Wishing you all safety and good health during this difficult time. The HealthWell Team
