Access Programs for Nilotinib
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.
