Getting Help Paying for Care

Do you or someone you know have trouble paying for your medical expenses?

Read on to learn about one of our partner organizations, HealthWell Foundation . . .

The HealthWell Foundation is a nationally recognized, independent non-profit organization founded in 2003, that has served as a safety net across over 80 disease areas for more than 615,000 underinsured patients by providing access to life-changing medical treatments. Since its inception, HealthWell has provided over $2.1 billion in grant support to access life-changing medical treatments patients otherwise would not be able to afford. 

When health insurance is not enough, HealthWell is here to help — with copays, premiums, deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses for supplies, supplements, surgeries and more. They offer financial assistance through a number of Disease Funds, with new funds opening every year, so you can get the care you need.

Recently, the foundation launched its enhanced Real-Time Fund Alerts portal. Now anyone can register to receive instant email notifications to track the status of HealthWell’s diverse portfolio of disease funds in real-time, including a variety of oncology funds. 

Registering for fund alerts is a fast and easy three-step process: 

  • Simply select Real-Time Fund Alerts from the dropdown Portal button at
  • Create an account with just your name and email address. 
  • Once you are logged in, click “Get Fund Alerts” and select the funds you would like to monitor in real-time. 

If the status of a fund changes, you will receive an instant notification through the email address you provided during registration. You can also change the funds you would like to monitor by selecting additional funds or removing a currently selected fund at any time. 

Visit HealthWell’s Real-Time Fund Alerts Portal today to register.  Patients, providers and pharmacies, are encouraged to sign up under the designated portals to monitor grants, activities, and also sign up for Real-Time Fund Alerts.

In addition, HealthWell recognizes the unmet needs of frontline health care workers during the public health crisis and the importance mental health has on their ability to cope with the devastating impact the COVID-19 pandemic has imparted on the patients they serve. 

In an effort to assist as many health care workers as possible, early in 2021 they launched a new, HealthWell-sponsored, fund to provide copayment assistance for behavioral health treatments for frontline health care workers who have been impacted by the COVID-19 public health crisis.

Through the COVID-19 Frontline Health Care Workers Behavioral Health Fund, HealthWell offers up to $2,000 in financial assistance for a 12-month grant period to eligible health care workers to assist in covering their out-of-pocket treatment-related copayments for prescription drugs, counseling services, psychotherapy, and transportation needed to manage COVID-19 related behavioral health issues.  Visit their COVID-19 Frontline Health Care Works Behavioral Health Fund to learn more.
