Due to the current Public Health Crisis, we are operating with limited staffing and will be focusing 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 during this time. If you have a question that cannot be answered by visiting the portal, please send an email to grants@healthwellfoundation.org. We appreciate your patience and look forward to continuing to serve you.

Finding financial assistance for caregivers and care recipients

If financial constraints have you spending a lot of time figuring out how to pay for medical care for yourself or a loved one, here’s something worth spending a few minutes to check out.

The HealthWell Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization started in 2003, provides financial assistance to cover the cost of prescription drug coinsurance, co-payments and deductibles, health-insurance premiums, and other selected costs for patients who have some medical coverage but still have difficulty meeting their out-of-pocket expenses.

The HealthWell Foundation, which has provided assistance to over 35,000 patients and allocated millions of dollars in grant money to patients living with breast cancer, colon cancer, asthma, psoriasis, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, rheumatoid arthritis, and many other conditions, considers individual financial, medical and insurance situations when determining assistance eligibility.
