NEW Patient Assistance Program

0 Comment

Have you heard about the NEW Patient Assistance Program that pays for vitamins? If not read on, as this outlines four important program areas: ELIGIBILITY, COVERAGE, ENROLLMENT and FULFILLMENT.

• Who is ELIGIBILE for the Healthwell Foundation Patient Assistance Program?

  1. Persons with a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis (“CF”)
  2. Individuals cared for within the U.S.
  3. Patients who have insurance (e.g. Medicaid, Medicare; or a commercial carrier like BCBS, Cigna, Aetna)
  4. Households with incomes less than five [5] times the Federal Poverty Guidelines (i.e. 5 times 11,770 and $58,550). This upper limit, however, may be higher based on the number of people in the household.

• What products are COVERED?

The Patient Assistance Program covers products recognized as “standards of care” in managing CF, not paid for by your insurance (e.g CF-specific vitamins, enteral formulas, either oral or tube, hypertonic saline). Grants may also cover some co-pays. Please ask your Healthwell customer service counselor when you call.

• Is it difficult to ENROLL?

Enrollment is EXTREMELY EASY. Just call the toll free number at
(800) 675-8416 and provide Patient Information (e.g. name, date of birth, address), Insurance Information and Household Income. Call volume is typically higher between 10:00am EST and 3:00pm EST, and calls are automatically disconnected after a 15-minute hold time. The call center is open from 9:00am EST through 5:00pm EST weekdays. While you are on the phone, make sure you ask your customer service counselor for your Healthwell Foundation Identification Number.

• How do I get vitamins FULFILLED?

The Healthwell Foundation identification number is the key to getting your vitamins. If you choose MVW Complete Formulation Multivitamins, just call MVW Nutritionals with your ID number and your shipping address. That’s it!

While you can get your vitamins fulfilled at any pharmacy, there are two reasons why you may want to choose MVW Nutritionals. First, products are provided at web prices, the lowest pricing available to patients. And second, we bill Healthwell directly, so there is never any out-of-pocket cost while waiting for reimbursement.

Just give MVW Nutritionals a call at (855) CF-MULTI with a Healthwell Identification Number and we do the rest – a 90 day supply of vitamins will be at your door in 2-3 business days.
