NeedyMeds is a national non-profit information resource dedicated to helping people locate assistance programs to help them afford their medications and other healthcare 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, they 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, they may be able to assist with your insurance premium.
The HealthWell Foundation also assists people dealing with a variety of disease states and medications. On the website you will find a list of the disease states they support and the medications they cover. Please note that this list is subject to change, depending on funding at any given time. The funds are open to new and re-enrolling patient applications. You may start the application process through the online service or by calling the HealthWell Foundation at 800-675-8416 to determine eligibility. Customer service representatives are available Monday – Friday from 9 am to 5 pm Eastern Time.
