Immediate Medication Assistance

Immediate Medication Assistance

Cancer drugs can be expensive – even with insurance. But they also can improve your outcome and your quality of life. That’s why it’s important to fill your prescriptions and take them and other non-prescription medications exactly as your doctor prescribed.

Don’t delay or skip your medications due to costs. Learn how you can get quick help with medication costs.

What’s Immediate Assistance?

When you aren’t able to cover your cost to fill a prescription, apply for immediate medication assistance. With this partnership for medication assistance, The APG Foundation makes a pharmacy payment for you. That means you don’t need to pay upfront, submit a receipt, and then wait for reimbursement.

How to Get Rx Help

To apply for immediate assistance, follow these steps:

  1. Complete an immediate medication assistance application.
  2. Ask your doctor to send your prescription to a participating pharmacy.
  3. Pick up your medication from the pharmacy. The pharmacy sends your bill directly to The APG Foundation.
