Behavioral Health Grants Available for Health Care Workers Affected by COVID-19 Crisis

Front-line health care workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic can apply for copayment assistance for behavioral health treatments through a new fund from the HealthWell Foundation.  

HealthWell will provide up to $2,000 in financial assistance over a 12-month period for out-of-pocket treatment copayments for prescription drugs, counseling services, psychotherapy, and transportation to manage COVID-19-related behavioral health issues.  

Health care workers who have annual household incomes up to 500% of the federal poverty threshold are eligible to apply.
