More ways to save on imatinib
Fill a 90-Day Supply to Save
In some cases, filling your prescription for a 90-day supply will give you a lower total cost compared to filling the same prescription multiple times for smaller amounts. Even if the drug and the dosage are the same, you will need a brand new prescription from your doctor to switch to 90-day fills.
Your pharmacy cannot transfer a prescription for a 30-day supply into one with a 90-day supply. Also, some insurance plans may require that you use a mail order pharmacy for prescriptions greater than a 30-day supply.
Patient Assistance Programs
Many programs are available from government organizations, non-profits, and drug manufacturers to assist with the costs of medications. It's free to sign up for these programs if you meet their requirements for eligibility. The enrollment options are different for each program, but they can usually be completed online, over the phone, or with the help of your doctor's office.
Please note, patient assistance programs cannot be used in conjunction with these rxless offers. Many times however, the offers listed on rxless will be less expensive than manufacturer coupons, copay cards, or patient assistance programs – so make sure you compare all options before making a purchase.
Research Lower Cost Alternatives
There may be other prescriptions that work equally well at treating a condition, but that are available at different prices. Ask your doctor if there are any lower cost alternative drugs that - and if switching to a different drug could affect your treatment.
