HealthWell Foundation Wants To Help MS Patients

I have a document that I would like you to read. This is the first time since I have started blogging that anyone has contacted me offering financial assistance to those living with Multiple Sclerosis. This help is for those who have Medicare and having a hard time making ends meet. This document includes all the information that you need, so I encourage you to take the time to read it, share with others that you might feel could benefit from this great organization.  They have helped over 3000 people this past year and are searching to help even more this year. I encourage you to pass this on please on your social media sites.  Thank you, and God Bless HealthWell Foundation.

What Is the HealthWell Foundation and How can I Help?

 

The HealthWell Foundation is a national 501c3 non-profit that provides financial assistance to adults and children with chronic conditions who can’t afford their out-of-pocket medical expenses. HealthWell’s grants cover the cost of prescription drug copayments, deductibles, and health insurance premiums. For more information about HealthWell, please visit www.healthwellfoundation.org.

 

HealthWell’s Multiple Sclerosis Fund launched in January 2014 to support Medicare patients living with MS. Last year, HealthWell approved and distributed grants to more than 3,000 MS patients, with some patients receiving more than one grant. This year, HealthWell is pleased to be able to assist even more patients.

 

In 2014, the average HealthWell grant amount to MS patients was over $3,000, yet the average maximum each patient could receive was higher — $6,000. In either case, that’s enough to make a big difference to a patient. One more impressive fact about HealthWell:  over 10,000 HealthWell grant recipients have stabilized their lives and “paid it forward” by donating to HealthWell to help other patients in need.

 

We welcome any attention you can draw to the fund, as we need help getting the word out to the MS community about this incredible fund.
