Financial Assistance for Lupus Treatments - Thank you, Healthwell!
Great news for those struggling to make ends meet due to the high cost of lupus medical treatments!
Healthwell, an independent non-profit, has just reopened their SLE fund to help patients who find themselves in need of financial assistance for their medications.
As someone who's paid over $1000 a month for Lovenox injections during pregnancy, $650 for one month of Cellcept, and over $450 a month for my plaquenil prescription, I get how overwhelming medical costs can be. I am thankful for a good insurance plan at present, but always brace myself as we draw close to our re-enrollment period each year. You'll either hear us jump for joy, or sigh in disgust once we learn what our premiums and drug coverage will be for the coming year!
Here's the direct link to Healthwell's SLE fund, where you can explore their offerings and see if you qualify.
I hope this eases the burden for those lupus families in need, especially during this season of giving!
