What We Do

We are an international nonprofit that helps people with chronic and life-altering illnesses by reducing their medical costs because we believe everyone deserves a chance at living fully despite economic circumstances.

The HealthWell Foundation is a leading non-profit dedicated to improving access to care for America’s underinsured. When health insurance isn’t enough, we fill the gap by assisting with copays, premiums, deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses. In 2020 alone our Disease Funds awarded more than $650 million in grants through their efforts; since 2004 they have helped over 615000 patients afford essential treatments and medication through their efficient work!

We provide financial assistance to help with:

  • Prescription copays
  • Health insurance premiums, deductibles and coinsurance
  • Pediatric treatment costs
  • Travel costs
