Immediate Medication Assistance
Cancer drugs can be expensive – even with insurance. But they also can improve a patient’s outcome and quality of life. That’s why it’s important to fill prescriptions and take them, and other non-prescription medications, exactly as prescribed.
What’s Immediate Assistance?
If a patient isn’t able to cover the cost to fill a prescription, even for a brief period until reimbursed, apply for immediate medication assistance to avoid delays in the start of prescribed treatment. With this partnership for medication assistance, The APG Foundation makes a pharmacy payment directly to participating pharmacies on the patient’s behalf.
