Updated on: February 17, 2016
Drug Company Assistance
The Novartis Patient Assistance Foundation (PAF) can help patients acquire high cost drugs
either for free or at reduced process.
For help acquiring deferasirox, visit the online enrollment page, select deferasirox, and fill in the required
information. To receive free medication,
patients must be US residents, meet income criteria, and not have private or
public prescription coverage. Please
note that there are exceptions for patients that cannot afford Medicare Part D
or B cost sharing.
PAF enrollment is quick, and Novartis recommends that either the
patient or provider call 1-888-903-7277 to complete the screening process. Applications can be obtained online,
filled out, and faxed to 1-855-817-2711.
To apply online, please visit the patient
portal and register as a new user.
For patients not meeting the PAF enrollment
criteria, the Patient Assistance NOW Oncology (PANO) program may be able to
provide information about other funding sources or assisting with denials and
appeals. Providers should fill out the PANO form and fax it to 1-888-891-4924.
ASH has not located any foundations that specifically offer assistance
for patients requiring deferasirox. If you
know of a program or foundation, please contact ASH Policy and Practice
Associate, Katherine Stark.
