b'Letter from our President and Board ChairIn 2021, health care challenges remained firmly fixed in Americas consciousness as the COVID-19 pandemic waxed and waned. More people than ever learned what it was like to live with a life-altering diseasehow quickly it can upend their daily lives, relationships, finances, and futures. As access to care continued to present challenges for Americas underinsured, the need for our services continued to grow.We understand all too well the devastating impact a health care crisis can have on families, forcing them to make difficult decisions whether to pay rent, buy food, pay for basic daily necessities or fill their prescriptions. That is why we are honored to provide a financial lifeline to those who have nowhere else to turn, and why we are beyond grateful for the support of our dedicated individual and corporate donors who allow us to carry out our mission.The continued trust and support our donors place in us is a testimony to the high ethical standards with which we have, and will continue to, run our programs. Operating in full compliance with federal guidance that governs the copayment assistance industry is the cornerstone of our operations. The way we are structured, governed, and operated is the ethical and right thing to do, and we wouldnt have it any other way.In 2021, we were honored to achieve a significant milestone of awarding our one millionth grant. We were proud to have launched or re-opened 18 funds, including a HealthWell-sponsored COVID-19 Frontline Health Care Workers Behavioral Health Fund. We also continued to operate more than 60 funds, including multiple funds in oncology and special initiative funds in behavioral health and pediatrics. None of this would have been possible without the continued generosity of our individual and corporate donors.On behalf of our board of directors and dedicated corporate and contact center teams, we would like to close by thanking our donors, our provider and pharmacy networks, our patient advocacy organization partners, our devoted employees, and especially our patients. We would also like to send a special thank you to our nations frontline health care workers for their compassion, commitment and tireless efforts to keep us safe and healthy. We are profoundly grateful for your unwavering commitment to assisting those in need.Warmest regards, Warm wishes, Krista ZodetStephen M.
