Our Alliance Partners
Working Together to Support Patient Communities
Patients often need support that goes beyond financial assistance. At HealthWell, we value our relationships with patient advocacy groups and national health care organizations. We work with these groups to support patient communities. We refer patients to one another, and, together, we raise awareness for various diseases.
“We applaud the HealthWell Foundation for recognizing the paramount need for frontline health care workers who are going to heroic measures to save the lives of those impacted by COVID-19 by providing a vital financial resource that will enable them to obtain critical behavioral health services.”
— Susan Gurley, Executive Director – Anxiety and Depression Association of America
“Unfortunately, individuals living with PH often face significant financial barriers to care. Charitable assistance organizations like the HealthWell Foundation provide an essential safety net for those whose lives depend on these complex therapies. PHA is thrilled that a new resource is now available for PH community members struggling with premium and copay costs.”
— Katie Kroner, Senior Director of Advocacy and Treatment – Pulmonary Hypertension Association
“Hyperoxaluria is a group of rare diseases that require life-long medical treatments. For many living with the disease, treatment options may be unattainable due to cost, which can ultimately lead to an irreversible, potentially life-threatening, situation for the patient. We are honored to partner with the HealthWell Foundation to spread the word about the new fund and to be able to share this critical financial resource with our community.”
— Kim Hollander, Executive Director– Oxalosis and Hyperoxaluria Foundation
