Description of Agency
The HealthWell Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization that helps individuals afford prescription medications they are taking for specific illnesses. The Foundation provides financial assistance to eligible patients to cover certain out-of-pocket health care costs, including: prescription drug coinsurance, co-payments, and deductibles; health insurance premiums; and other selected out-of-pocket health care costs.
The HealthWell Foundation provides financial assistance to eligible individuals to cover coinsurance, copayments, health care premiums and deductibles for certain medications and therapies. If you've been prescribed a medication and your insurance company covers it, but you still cannot afford the coinsurance or copayment required, we may be able to assist you by paying for part of your costs associated with the medication. Also, if you are eligible for health insurance, but cannot afford the insurance premium, we may be able to assist with your insurance premium.
Please keep in mind that the HealthWell Foundation currently does not assist with the following expenses:
Administration or infusion costs,
Medical equipment and supplies,
Health insurance premium costs for an entire family,
Deductibles that apply to treatments and services that are not eligible for your approved disease fund,
