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

Dismiss alert

Michelle (Ayden's mom), Salem, OH

 

My little boy is 23 months now and since birth he has had chronic health issues. He was admitted to the NICU for 12 days after birth for aspirating my amniotic fluid, causing breathing issues from the start. At 6 months of age he became diagnosed with asthma. Medication expenses were burdening my husband and I financially, because we still had his other medical bills haunting us. At 15 months, Ayden became critically anemic, needing a blood transfusion, the anemia too made his asthma worse. For months we were at doctors appointments and seemed like every other week we were on steroid treatments to calm his flare ups down. At 20 months, Ayden was hospitalized again, this time for a bad virus, causing more medical bills and his asthma hitting rock bottom again. I knew I couldn’t afford the expenses of everything piling up and the huge expense of his inhalers, but he was my priority! I finally it took upon myself to call the maker of the drug and they guided me to HealthWell. An answer to prayer this has been! Normally my husband and I never qualify for assistance, being middle class, hard-working parents, but this time we got approved and I am truly grateful for this program!

Thank you HealthWell!
