Drug Company Assistance

Novartis' Patient Assistance Foundation (PAF) can help patients acquire high-cost drugs for free or at reduced prices.

For assistance acquiring nilotinib, visit the online enrollment page, select nilotinib, and fill in the required information. To receive free medication, patients must be U.S. residents, meet income criteria, and not have private or public prescription coverage. Please note that there are exceptions for patients who 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. To apply online, please visit the patient portal and register as a new user. Applications may also be obtained online, filled out, and faxed to 1-855-817-2711.

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 assistance with denials and appeals. Providers should fill out the PANO form and fax it to 1-888-891-4924.
