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 there 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, including Porphyrias, with new funds opening every year, so you can get the care you need.
HealthWell’s has had a longstanding commitment to the Porphyria community. Through its Porphyrias Fund, HealthWell provides up to $4,000 in copayment or insurance premium assistance for a 12-month grant period to eligible patients living with porphyrias who have annual household incomes up to 400 percent of the federal poverty level. Since launching the fund in 2006, the Foundation has awarded more than $255,000 in financial assistance to over 80 patients. Applying for assistance is easy and takes less than five minutes.
