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

iHealthWell covers nebulizer systems (compressor + handset) where a covered product can only be delivered using that system. In all other cases, HealthWell is able to assist with handset replacements.

HealthWell is committed to supporting the CF Community and the established guidelines around our covered product list are meant to focus on the areas of greatest need for the majority of people living with CF. We understand there are additional areas to be addressed and, over time, it is our hope to be able to expand our coverage even further.

As an independent, non-profit organization, HealthWell works closely with many advocacy groups associated with the funds we manage, including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. While we may seek their insight related to some aspects our CF program, the decisions are ultimately ours.

The following products have already been considered by HealthWell and, at this time, are not covered under the fund. We periodically reconsider coverage for these products; any changes to the list of covered products will be made available through our website at www.HealthWellFoundation.org.
