Review for HealthWell Foundation, Germantown, MD, USA
I am 80 years young and have osteoporosis. My Endocrinologist prescribed Prolia, which I have been using for many years. Everything was fine while I was working. When I retired with no income other than a monthly Social Security check, my portion of the payment for this medication became prohibitive. I tried calling Amgen, the manufacturer to inquire about a patient assistance program. They had none. For several years I went 'without'. By chance, I came upon HealthWell Foundation. I called their office immediately, and within no time I was able to pick up the medication at the Pharmacy with no out-of-pocket cost to me. The endocrinologist had never heard of HealthWell, and was so impressed he now tells other patients who are in the same financial situation as I am to reach out. I am so very grateful for the wonderful work HealthWell Foundation does.
