Review for HealthWell Foundation, Germantown, MD, USA
When my husband, a multiple myeloma patient, was prescribed the drug, Revlimid, we were shocked to learn that oral medications are not covered by medical insurance, but fall under the patient's prescription drug plan...under which our co-pay for one pill is $500 each! We were really scared we would have to sell our home at age 80. When a friend told me about HealthWell Foundation, I applied immediately. Without the help of HealthWell Foundation he would not have been able to survive. The help we receive has allowed us to live in our own home and allowed my husband to receive the co-pay assistance that makes it possible for him to take the drug that will keep him alive. In addition, Healthwell has made the annual application process easy for him, which is a real relief. When a person feels lousy, having to go through a rigorous application process is pretty hard. The HealthWell staff has been kind and helpful, and made the procedure easy and we are very grateful for the help we receive.
