Resources for Patients with Rare Diseases
This section of the website provides information and resources to help answer questions you may have about GLEEVEC® or any of the rare diseases it is indicated to treat.
As you begin your treatment with GLEEVEC, you probably have questions about insurance coverage and reimbursement. To help answer questions you and other patients might have, a telephone hotline has been established.
This hotline is staffed with reimbursement specialists who can help you learn more about:
- Insurance verification. Call the hotline to have your insurance benefits and eligibility verified and to determine your cost for your GLEEVEC prescription
- Billing assistance. Discuss any billing questions with reimbursement specialists. Also, if a claim of yours is denied due to billing errors or medical necessity issues, specialists can help you develop strategies for appeal
- Patient assistance programs. If you are uninsured, your costs for therapy may be reimbursed from other sources. If no sources are found, you may still be eligible to receive the drug from the Novartis Patient Assistance Program

With your reimbursement questions answered, you can focus on other areas of your treatment.
